1. For the Salsa, mix all ingredients in small bowl until well blended. Cover. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

2. For the Burgers, mix bell pepper, onions, chili sauce, cilantro, garlic, sea salt, allspice, red pepper and thyme in medium bowl until well blended. Add ground turkey; mix well. Shape into 4 patties.

3. Grill over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes per side or until burgers are cooked through (internal temperature reaches 165°F). Serve burgers on rolls with Salsa.

Test Kitchen Tip:
For additional flavor, use grilled mango in the Salsa. Peel and cut mango into large slices. Grill over medium heat until grill marks appear, turning occasionally. Coarsely chop mango and continue as directed.
