Delicious Sirloin Burgers with Tomato Corn Salsa

Annie, over at Mixed Salad Annie, recently made history on her blog and posted her first burger recipe. I often check out her site because she always provides delicious yet fairly simple recipes. Being that I'm not the best cook in the world, I absolutely adore her recipes.

I try to incorporate a little red meat into my diet. One, because every once in a while I crave some read meat. And two, because a little red meat can actually be good for you. Just remember, all things in moderation. Here's her recipe for Sirloin Burgers with Tomato Corn Salsa. Enjoy~

Sirloin Burgers with Tomato Corn Salsa
Salsa:12 cherry tomatoes, finely chopped (I used 1 large organic field tomatoes)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus additional kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, for seasoning
1/2 cup cooked fresh corn or thawed frozen corn kernels (I used fresh)
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves (I used my own grown Italian parsley)
2 teaspoons olive oil
Additional kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Burgers:
4 - 1/4 pound 93% lean sirloin burgers
Cooking spray
1 teaspoon grill seasoning
Dash of kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

To make the salsa: Toss the tomatoes with the salt and drain in a colander for 15 minutes. Combine the tomatoes, corn, lime juice, garlic, cilantro/parsley, and olive oil in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and toss well.

To make the burgers: Preheat the oven broiler. Season the burgers with the the grill seasoning and salt and pepper. Spray a foil lined baking sheet with the cooking spray and place the burgers on it. Cook for about 3 minutes per side for medium well or to your liking.
Top with salsa and serve immediately.
