Here's a nutrient- and flavor-rich take on a summer barbecue staple. Fresh herbs perk up both the lean grilled burger as well as the accompanying "mayo," a zesty blend of nonfat sour cream, chives, salt, and pepper. Instead of cheese, the burgers are topped with raw spinach and a sweet and tangy apple slaw, which add extra fiber and folate. Serve grilled sweet potato salad on the side.
