With grilling season under way, all I can think about is what I’m going to grill next!

From Bruschetta Turkey Burgers to Spinach Artichoke Turkey Burgers to these Hawaiian Turkey Burgers, I’m always looking for ways to make burgers just a little bit healthier during swimsuit season, which just so happens to overlap with grilling season!

For this recipe, I topped the turkey burger with a relish made of caramelized onions, pineapple and jalapenos. A delicious combination of sweet, spicy and tropical flavors!

You’ll definitely want to grab them at the grocery store before whipping these burgers up!
