- METHOD -

To make the burger sauce, combine all the burger sauce ingredients. To make the salsa, combine all the salsa ingredients.

To make the burgers, fry the onion in 2 Tbsp vegetable oil until soft and translucent but not browned. Place bread in a food processor and blitz until you have fine crumbs. Combine all the burger ingredients. Form burger patties and fry them in a bit of oil until cooked to your liking. Alternately cook the burgers on the braai. Place the mozzarella slices on the burger patties for the final few minutes of cooking to allow the heat of the pattie to melt the cheese.

Toast the burger buns on the braai or in a hot dry pan and assemble your burger just the way you like it.
