1 avocado, halved and pitted
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 lb. ground turkey thigh meat
1/2 c. salsa verde
4 slices pepper jack cheese (about 4 ounces)
4 kaiser rolls, split
1 c. fresh cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped
2 small green or red tomatoes sliced (I recommend green)

1. Scoop the avocado flesh into a small bowl. Add the mayonnaise and garlic and mash with a fork until well combined but chunky. Season with salt and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, combine the ground turkey and salsa. Divide the mixture to form 4 patties.

3. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook the patties for 4 minutes more.

4. Spread the avocado aioli on the split side of each roll
bottom and cover with 1/4 c. cilantro. Top with a patty and 2 tomato slices; set the roll tops into place.
