Turkey Burgers with Creamy Cucumber Dill Sauce

After absolutely loooooving Southwest Turkey Burgers with Avocado Sauce, I've been thinking about what other yummy sauces I could make to top turkey burgers. I always buy ground turkey in bulk at Costco so have it in my freezer almost all of the time and on my last Costco visit I also picked up some cute baby cucumbers. They inspired me to whip up a creamy cucumber dill sauce to top off the burgers.

 My hubby didn't seem very excited about the idea, but one spoonful of the sauce changed his mind. It's like a simplified version of tzatziki sauce. Creamy, tangy, a little crunchy. It was very yummy on top of juicy turkey burgers and melted cheese, but could also be a dip for pitas, crackers, veggies, whatever your little heart desires!
