Ingredients

  • 1 (4 oz) pkg crumbled blue cheese
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • 1 ½ cups frozen cherries
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 ½ lb lean ground beef
  • 1 lemon
  • 4 whole grain buns or rolls
  • black pepper
  • brown sugar
  • Dijon mustard
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • garlic powder
  • honey
  • red wine vinegar
  • rosemary, dried
  • salt

Instructions

  1. Place cherries, cranberries, vinegar, sugar, and spices in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
    • 1 ½ cup frozen cherries
    • ¼ cup dried cranberries
    • 4 tsp red wine vinegar
    • 1 tsp brown sugar
    • ½ tsp rosemary, dried
    • ½ tsp salt
    • ¼ tsp black pepper
  2. Once boiling, gently crush the fruit with the back of a spoon to release juices. Reduce heat to a simmer and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Meanwhile, peel and mince garlic; transfer to a large bowl.
    • 2 cloves garlic
  4. Wash, dry, and juice lemon into the bowl with the garlic. Add oil, Dijon, honey, salt, and pepper; whisk to combine the dressing.
    • 1 lemon
    • 4 tsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
    • 1 tsp honey
    • ½ tsp salt
    • ¼ tsp black pepper
  5. Wash, dry, and fold kale leaves in half lengthwise and slice off the stems. Chop or tear leaves into bite-sized pieces and transfer to the bowl. Use your hands to massage the dressing into the kale until slightly softened; set aside.
    • 1 bunch kale
  6. Form the ground beef into 4 equal-sized patties, place on a plate, and season with spices.
    • 1 ½ lb lean ground beef
    • 1 tsp salt
    • ½ tsp black pepper
    • ½ tsp garlic powder
  7. Preheat a large grill pan, outdoor grill, or regular skillet over medium-high heat.
  8. Once the grill pan is hot, place patties in the pan and cook, undisturbed, for 5 minutes; flip patties and cook an additional 2-3 minutes, until cooked through. Once done, transfer to a clean plate.
  9. If desired, place buns, cut-side down, on the grill pan to toast, 1-2 minutes.
    • 4 whole grain buns or rolls
  10. Place bottom half of a bun on each plate, then top with burgers, blue cheese, and cherry sauce. Close with the top half of the bun and serve with salad on the side. Enjoy!
