  1. Burgers:
  2. 1. Finely chop enough onion to yield 1/3 cup (reserve remaining rounds for burgers). In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high; cook chopped onion and mushrooms, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft and mushrooms are golden, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, then transfer to a cutting board and roughly chop mixture.
  3. 2. Heat a grill to medium-high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. Season onion rounds with salt and pepper; grill until lightly charred and tender, about 5 minutes, flipping once. In a large bowl, combine mushrooms mixture, turkey and parsley. Form into four 1/2 inch thick patties; season with salt and pepper. Grill about 4 minutes, flipping once. Top each patty with cheese; grill until burgers are cooked through and cheese is just melted, about 1 minute. Serve burgers on buns with grilled onions, peppers and arugula.

  4. Potato salad:
  5. 1. In a large pot, bring potatoes to a boil over high heat in salted water. Reduce to a rapid simmer and cook until potatoes are tender when pierced, about 15 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer potatoes to a large bowl. Return water to a boil, add leeks and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer leeks to a blender. Add mustard, oil, vinegar and 1/3 cup water; puree until very smooth.
  6. 2. Add leek mixture to potatoes and toss; season with salt and pepper. Top with parsley and serve warm or at room temperatures. (To store, refrigerate in an airtight container up to 2 days).
