I have to admit, I’m proud of myself.  It’s no secret that fall is my favorite season of the year and normally I spend most of the summer just waiting for autumn to arrive.  This year though, I think I’ve done a great job of making the most of summer and enjoying it to the fullest (well, as much as one can without a beach vacation).  Meals involving lots of fresh produce and grilling have been the focus of our menus and for me, this burger is an ideal summer food.  I’ve never been keen on the idea of fruit-meat combos, but this one sounded too good not to try.

The burger patties are the same as those of my favorite basic hamburger, then topped with a homemade teriyaki sauce and garnished with a mango-pineapple salsa.  Really, I can’t say enough good things about this meal so I’ll just say that I think everyone needs to make them at least once before summer slips away.  I have a feeling I’ll be making them again in the depths of winter when I’m yearning for warmer weather.
