Turkey Burgers and Cucumber Rice Salad
Salad: Prepare rice as package directs. Stir in remaining ingredients.
Turkey Burger: Heat grill. Mix rice vinegar, 1/4 cup soy sauce in a small bowl; set aside. 4 shiitake mushrooms and 2 scallions; finely chop. Add to ground turkey along with remaining 2 Tbsp soy sauce and the ginger. Gently mix to combine. Shape into four 1-in.-thick burgers.
Coat burgers and remaining mushrooms and scallions with nonstick spray.
Grill 12 to 14 minutes, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted from side to middle of burgers registers 165 F.
Serve burgers with mushrooms and scallions. Sprinkle salad with almonds. Drizzle burgers, mushrooms and scallions with soy-vinegar mixture.
