Caprese Burger with Avocado

Author Notes: One of my favorite summer salads is a Caprese Salad. I usually serve this salad as a side when having a cookout. It's so light and refreshing yet bursting with flavor. I usually add avocado to the salad as well because, I mean who doesn't love a ripe buttery avocado? One day while grilling I got the genius idea to just combine that delicious salad with a juicy char-grilled burger. Wallah!Katie Farrow
