Burgers with Raisin Salsa

Tomatoes, basil and raisins combine to make a unique salsa for stuffing and topping grilled burgers.



  • 4 ripe plum tomatoes, diced
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped green onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped California raisins
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 pound ground round of beef
  • Black pepper; to taste


Prepare coals for grilling. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients except ground beef. Set aside. Season beef with pepper. Shape into 8 flat patties. Make a small indentation in center of 4 patties. Divide and spoon 1 tablespoon of salsa into each indentation. Top with remaining patties. Seal sides well. Grill burgers 3 to 4 inches above hot coals until done (160°F at thickest part). Top with remaining salsa and serve plain or on toasted buns.
