  1. In large bowl, combine first 3 ingredients and 1 tablespoon Dried Tomato & Garlic Pesto Mix. Form into 6 patties. In a gallon freezer bag, combine zucchini, 1 tablespoon Avocado Oil and Garlic Garlic Seasoning. Seal well; toss to coat.
  2. In medium microwave-safe bowl, combine remaining 1 tablespoon Dried Tomato & Garlic Pesto Mix with 3 tablespoons water. Microwave on HIGH 30 seconds. Let cool. Whisk in mayonnaise and milk of choice. Set aside.
  3. Prepare grill to medium heat. Place patties and zucchini slices on grill. Grill, turning once, until internal temperature of burgers reaches 165°F on an instant-read food thermometer, about 8-10 minutes and zucchini slices are browned and crisp-tender, about 5-6 minutes.
  4. Layer zucchini slices, turkey burgers, tomato slices, red onion and arugula. Drizzle with pesto dressing.

Makes 6 servings.

Serve with wedges of watermelon.
