When I was growing up in New Jersey this type of hamburger was called a “California Burger.” I guess it was because it had produce on it. Now that I live in California we just call them burgers. LOL! Since this type of meal is infrequent on our table it seemed particularly wonderful.
John cooked the hamburgers outside on the grill. I sat outside while he was grilling just to smell the burgers cooking. It reminds me of summer. I put light mayonnaise on the bottom bun and ketchup on the top. We had a slice of one of our daughter’s tomatoes, a piece of crisp Romaine lettuce, and a slice of red onion. It was perfect!
I made salsa slaw. This consists of shredded cabbage and carrots plus thinly sliced onion. The dressing is a combination of medium fresh salsa and light mayonnaise.

You brought back memories of grilling growing up. We just called them burgers and served them with lettuce, tomatoes, onion and mayonnaise. Thanks for sharing.
