How to make it

- 2 In a large bowl, combine the turkey, green onion, soy sauce, ginger, mustard and pepper. Mix well. Shape mixture into 6 patties.

- The typical burger condiments—ketchup, yellow mustard, relish, and pickles-- are high in sodium. For a change of pace, try topping burgers with healthy alternatives such as tomato, red and green bell pepper, and a little homemade salsa. Also make wise bread choices—English muffins and whole-wheat pita pockets are low-fat options.
