  1. Check 1 English cucumber, halved and thinly sliced
  2. Check 4 radishes, thinly sliced
  3. Check 2tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  4. Check 2tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  5. Check 3tablespoons olive oil
  6. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  7. Check 1pound ground turkey
  8. Check 2tablespoons barbecue sauce, plus more for serving
  9. Check 4 slices Cheddar (4 ounces)
  10. Check 4 hamburger buns, toasted
  11. Check lettuce and potato chips, for serving


  1. Combine the cucumber, radishes, lemon juice, dill, 2 tablespoons of the oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
  2. Gently mix together the turkey, barbecue sauce, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper with your hands in a large bowl until just combined. Dividing evenly, form the turkey mixture into four ¾-inch patties. Use your fingers to make a shallow well in the top of each patty (this will prevent overplumping during cooking).
  3. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the patties and cook until cooked through and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 165° F, 4 to 6 minutes per side.
  4. Top the burgers with the Cheddar, dividing evenly, and cook, covered, until the Cheddar is melted, 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Stack the lettuce, burgers, and additional barbecue sauce between the buns. Serve with the cucumber salad and potato chips.
