My Sweet and Salty burger is a perfect bite with a sweet salty flavored burger enhanced by the salty cheese and sweet Walla Wall Sweet Onion (The best onions in the world!) and slice of sweet tomato with a little kick from my delicious spicy sweet fry sauce.
This burger would pair nicely with the crisp slightly dry glass of chardonnay.
