Vegetables – that’s how you make a Burger into a healthy meal … right? Piling deliciously fresh veggies atop a Burger gives it more dynamic flavors and also makes it all the more photogenic. Avocado adds a cool, smooth, buttery element; pickles add tang and crunch. For the spice lovers, jalapeños are where it’s at. If you dream hard enough, you can probably find a way to use just about any vegetable on your Burger.
