To prepare mayo, whisk mayonnaise, lime juice, lime peel, jelly and ginger together in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate.

To prepare salsa, in a small bowl, whisk olive oil, lime juice, jelly, ginger and onion together until well blended. Fold in mango and avocado. Season with salt; toss together. Reserve mint for later. Refrigerate salsa.

Preheat a gas grill to medium-high or prepare a medium-hot fire in charcoal grill with cover.

Brush grill rack with vegetable oil. Brush garlic oil blend over split sides of buns; set buns near grill. Retrieve patties and place on grill rack. Close grill and cook patties until browned on bottom, about 5 minutes. Turn patties; close grill and cook 5 to 6 minutes longer or until juices run clear. During final minutes of cooking lightly toast buns, split side down on grill rack.

To assemble burgers, retrieve salsa and mint; stir together. Retrieve mayo and smear in equal amounts over bun bottoms, top with lettuce then a burger. Spoon salsa over burger then close with bun top.
