  • 1 tbsp fat-free plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp yellow mustard
  • 2 tsp sweet relish
  • 4 oz raw lean ground turkey (7% fat or less)
  • 1 tbsp chopped onion
  • 1 tbsp egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • dash black pepper
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp salsa or Pico de Gallo with 90mg sodium or less per 2-tbsp serving
  • 4 large (or 2 extra-large) iceberg or butter lettuce leaves
  • 1 large tomato slice


1. To make the sauce, in a small bowl, combine yogurt, mustard, and relish. Mix well.


2. In a medium bowl, combine turkey, onion, egg whites/substitute, garlic powder, and pepper. Evenly form into a 4-inch wide patty.


3. Bring a grill pan (or skillet) sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook patty for 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through.


4. Meanwhile, combine black beans with salsa/pico de gallo in a small microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave for 1 minute, or until hot. Mix well.


5. Stack two large lettuce leaves, and place tomato in the center (or stack two extra-large leaves, and place tomato over one half). Top with turkey patty and sauce, and finish with the remaining two large lettuce leaves (or wrap the extra-large leaves around the filling).


6. Serve with black beans.
