Jerusalem Turkey Burgers with Zucchini

Moist, flavorful turkey burgers straight from the pages of my favorite cookbook of the summer, Jerusalem from Yotam Ottolenghi. The turkey burgers are specked with grated zucchini and fresh herbs adding moisture, volume and summer flavors. If low-cal burgers have left you hungry for, you know, something "more" – this is your burger!

Wedge Salad with Homemade Low-Cal, Low-Carb Blue Cheese Salad Dressing

Happy Salad Days, All!
Welcome to my salad version of that famous hot-weather favorite, the BLT Sandwich. A good BLT is such a late-summer indulgence of good bread, bacon and tomato. But really, isn't a Wedge Salad really a BLT without all the bread? Right?! For my salad version, start off with a much lighter but completely rich Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing where it "pays" to pay attention to texture. Drizzle the dressing over a wedge of iceberg lettuce, a juicy tomato, crispy bacon plus a few bread crumbs cooked in bacon grease. Then, y'know, just call it “dinner”! Tonight, maybe?!
