Ingredients

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

Directions

  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.
