Salmon Delight Burger

SALMON DELIGHT BURGER

Full of light flavors and raw veggies, this burger tastes like it's been plucked from a spa menu. Salmon and eggs, velvety and rich, are balanced with refreshingly crunchy cucumber, mild raw spinach and a cool, creamy yogurt-mint sauce that adds a sassy tang.

Pork Burger

CITRUS-STACKED PORK BURGER

Trying to eat light? Equal parts meat and fresh fruit, this balanced burger lets you have it both ways. Red grapefruit lends a sweet, citrusy spark to savory grilled pork, while avocado's "good fat" enriches an otherwise lean burger. Finally, we dress the fruit salad with a satisfying, lower-calorie vinegar-honey glaze.

Smokin Chicken Buger

SMOKIN' CHICKEN BURGER

This burger gives a refined spin to comfort food! Bacon adds a salty dimension, while caramelization transforms onions from harsh to slightly sweet. Ground chicken spiked with chopped mushrooms makes for a juicier, texturally complex patty, and red wine and tomato paste are reduced to an intense, savory sauce.

Stuffed Lamb Burger

STUFFED LAMB BURGER

This burger can spice things up before it even hits your lips. Lamb's rich flavor really makes an impression; and one bite reveals a stash of peppery watercress stuffed inside. Plus, this burger dares to dress in curry-yellow mayonnaise with a hot pink radish fringe.

Kickin Beef Burger

KICKIN' BEEF BURGER

Turn up the heat on the all-American patty by spiking plain coleslaw with jalapeno chiles. Sun-dried tomatoes and fiery chipotle chiles put the squeeze on ketchup, and those chips on the bottom? They're laced with chili seasoning. We pull off the cozy blanket of bland cheese, too, and wake up this burger with pepper jack.
