Recipe Tips

Sun-dried tomatoes are simply dried tomatoes. The drying process results in a intense-flavored tomato with a chewy texture and deep red color. They can be purchased packed in oil, like we use in these burgers, or dry-packed.

These went over well, although my husband thought the saltiness of the olives made them taste like hot dogs. I thought they were great, and enjoyed the kick of the salsa.
