Jamaican Jerk Turkey Burgers with Papaya-Mango Salsa

Burgers on the grill are anything but ordinary when they're made with jerk-seasoned ground turkey. Ketchup and mustard step aside for a cool, fruity salsa that offsets the spice of the burgers. Be sure to coat the burgers and the grill rack with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Prepare the salsa up to a day in advance.

To prepare salsa, combine first 7 ingredients. Let stand at room temperature at least 30 minutes.
