Thai Turkey Burger and Broccoli Slaw Salad

1/4 cup fat-free mayo (I use light)
1 1/2 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon grated fresh lime zest
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon less sodium soy sauce
1 lb ground turkey breast
1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
cooking spray
4 light wheat hamburger buns (I use WW english muffins)
12 spinach leaves
12 slices english cucumber
8 slices red bell pepper

Prepare grill. Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside. Combine turkey and next 2 ingredients in a bowl. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2 in. thick patty. Place patties on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until done. Spread about 1 tablespoon mayonnaise mixture on bottom half of each bun; top each with 3 spinach leaves, 1 patty, 3 cucumber slices, 2 red bell pepper slices, and top half of bun.

4 servings
6 WW pts (for those of you who count)

Notes: The spinach I do put on the burger, but I serve the cucumber and pepper slices on the side b/c the mayo mixture makes things a little slippery when you bite into the burger.

Broccoli Salad

1/4 bag of broccoli salad
1 tablespoon light may0
splash of apple cider vinegar
1 packet splenda

Mix all ingredients well, and serve. Very yummy, and a great way to get some veggies in.
