Avocado Mayo

  • ½ ripe avocado, mashed

  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

  • 1 scallion, finely chopped

  • ½ teaspoon lime zest

  • salt


  • 1 pound 90%-lean ground beef

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 small red onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

  • 3 bacon, cooked and halved crosswise

  • toasted slider buns, preferably whole-wheat

  • 1 small ripe mango, peeled and sliced

  • cup baby kale

  • cup alfalfa sprouts


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

  2. To prepare mayo: Combine avocado, mayonnaise, scallion, lime zest and a pinch of salt in a mini food processor. Puree until smooth.

  3. To prepare sliders: Combine beef, Worcestershire, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Form into 6 patties, about 3 inches in diameter.

  4. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the burgers until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 160 degrees F, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Grill onion until lightly browned and tender, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  5. Assemble each burger on a bun with a generous 1 tablespoon each of the Avocado Mayo, bacon, onion, mango, kale and sprouts.


Make Ahead Tip: Press plastic wrap directly on the surface of the Avocado Mayo (Step 2) and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.

To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
