    Good morning my friend! Each burger is indeed a great idea, but that salmon burger is the one for me! You are right; there is no need to deprive yourself of a good burger when the healthy choices are in such abundance. I always say, MORE COLOR on the plate with natural ingredients means more fruits and veggies and that’s always a better choice.

    I hope you have a grand weekend; we are going to RELAX and have fun! Much love, Anita

      You’re all done now for the summer, lucky lady! And I agree, we always need lots of colour on our plate. And it makes for a much more interesting photo, lol.
      Have a great weekend and I’m sure we’ll talk before you escape on your trip. 🙂

    What a great presentation of burgers and side dishes. They all look fabulous and colorful. I appreciate the photography of each. Summer is almost here, so it’s grilling time baby. I will definitely be trying out some of these. We are enjoying a quiet weekend. Lotas of love from W.W.

      Oh, I’d love to hear your recipe for grilled bean burgers, Mindy. I have yet to make one! I think I better try to put together a concoction. Speaking of new recipes, I have one coming out soon that is one I promised you a long time ago 🙂

    Yum! I think the BBQ is going to have to be uncovered this evening 🙂 Unfortunately, no Memorial Day break here in Malaysia.

      But your weather is nice enough to have a BBQ all the time, Michelle, so that makes up for the lack of holidays, lol. Maybe you should start a tradition amongst the US folks there!

    It’s great to see healthy burgers that are visually appealing, such as these! Now healthy is redefined. Healthy is the new delicious!!

    I agree, Ladies! I think the popular vote is slowly and finally swinging to the healthy side of eating. You can’t beat it. Thanks for your visit 🙂
