    This recipe is fabulous any time of year—it’s fresh and light for the warmer months, but the flavours are rich and comforting for winter. I love making extra burgers and eating them chilled the next day with a salad—so satisfying! I also love homemade salsa and guacamole, so I combined them in this fresh, vibrant topping for the burgers.
