Wine Varietal: Merlot
I was inspired to create this recipe with a touch of sweet and savory in every bite. That’s why I combined the sweetness of vidalia onions, balsamic vinegar, honey and cilantro with the savory taste of blue cheese, paprika, arugula and spinach.
I hope you enjoy this tasty burger. It’s delish!
3/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup Greek plain yogurt
2 Tbsp. fresh thyme, chopped

Preheat grill to medium-high.
Combine blue cheese, yogurt, thyme and paprika in a bowl; mix well to combine.
Divide ground turkey into 6 burgers. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Brush oil onto both sides of sliced onions.
Place burgers onto hot grill; cook for 4 minutes on each side or until fully cooked.
Remove burgers from grill; set aside.
Place onions in a bowl with vinegar, honey, lime juice and zest; toss to combine. Place onions on the grill; grill for 6-7 minutes or until crispy.
Spread buns with blue cheese mixture. Then, add arugula and baby spinach, then cilantro, a burger, an onion slice and the top bun.
