Grill turkey burgers until at least 165 degrees. With a minute or two left of cooking time, top the burgers with cheese. Brush the buns with olive oil and lightly toast on the grill. To serve, top the burger with additional pesto, and sliced tomato.

Citrus Pesto

Add all of the ingredients, except the Pasolivo Oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, to a food processor and pulse until coarsely mixed. While processing, slowly add the olive oil and vinegar until well blended. You may want to add more oil if the pesto is too thick. Add the salt and pepper to taste. To store in the refrigerator, top the pesto with a thin layer of the Pasolivo Citrus Olive oil.
