Summertime is Burger Time
"I was in Guadalajara and had a burger similar to this one," Assistant Food Stylist Kathleen Kanen reports. The salsa that topped the burger was a welcome change from the usual tomato and onion slices, and Kathleen added tequila to her version. The recipe makes more salsa than you'll need for the burgers; serve the extra on the side with baked tortilla chips.
Combine chile powder, salt, and beef. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each portion into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.
Place patties on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes on each side or until done. Place rolls, cut sides down, on grill rack; grill 1 minute or until toasted. Place 1 patty on bottom half of each roll; top each serving with 1/3 cup Tequila-Spiked Salsa and top half of roll.
Totals include Tequila-Spiked Salsa.

This simple fruit salad takes its cue from Kelly Brownell. It's full of flavor and nutrients--and it's a delicious way to satisfy a sweet tooth. The ground red pepper provides an unexpected heat that balances the sweetness of the fruit.
To prepare syrup, combine first 5 ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook 3 minutes or until mixture is slightly syrupy. Remove from heat; stir in 1/4 cup mint and rind. Let stand 30 minutes. Strain syrup through a sieve over a bowl; discard solids.
To prepare salad, combine cantaloupe and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add syrup; toss gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
