From the Test Kitchen

These flavor-packed burgers feature ground chorizo (a type of Mexican spiced pork sausage) topped with rounds of sautéed onion, which also absorb the juice from the patties as they cook together in the pan. A swipe of fig spread combined with mayonnaise lends it all sweet, creamy contrast.

Peel the onion; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick rounds, keeping the layers intact. Halve the buns

3 Cook the patties & onion:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties and 4 onion rounds (you may have extra onion) in an even layer. Loosely cover the pan with aluminum foil and cook 5 to 6 minutes on the first side, or until lightly charred. Flip and cook 5 to 6 minutes, or until the onion rounds are softened and the patties are cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a work surface.

4 Make the dressing & salad:

While the patties and onion cook, wash and dry the remaining fresh produce. In a large bowl, combine the fromage blanc, vinegar, and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Whisk until smooth. Cut off and discard the root end of the lettuce; roughly chop the leaves. Halve the cucumber lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Just before serving, add the prepared lettuce and cucumber to the bowl of dressing; toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Toast the buns:

Add the buns, cut side down, to the pan of reserved fond. Toast on medium-high 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface.
