1. Preheat gas grill to medium high heat. 2. Place butter, parsley and oregano into a medium bowl and mix until well combined. Cover and set aside. 3. For glaze, place 1/2 Cup maple syrup, reserving 1/4 Cup for later and 2 Tablespoons Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard, reserving 2 teaspoons plus 2 Tablespoons for later, into a medium bowl, mix well and set aside. 4. For cran-apple pico de gallo, place apples, cranberries, 1/4 Cup chopped walnuts, reserving 1/2 Cup ground walnuts for later, and lemon juice into a medium size bowl. Toss, cover and set aside. 5. Place greens into a large bowl. Mix remaining 1/4 Cup maple syrup and 2 teaspoons Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard in a small bowl and pour over greens. Toss to coat, cover and set aside. 6. Place ground beef, remaining 1/2 Cup ground walnuts, 2 Tablespoons Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard and salt into a large bowl. With hands or large spoon, gently mix all ingredients until well combined, trying to handle meat as little as possible to prevent compacting meat. Form into 6 equal size patties. 7. When grill is ready, brush grill rack with vegetable oil. Brush both sides of patties with maple glaze. Place patties on grill, cover, and cook for 4 minutes, until bottom is brown. Brush both sides of patties with additional glaze. With spatula, turn over patties and cook an additional 4 minutes, or until done to your preference (internal temperature of 160 degrees F). During last few minutes of grilling, place cheese slice on each burger to melt. Spread herb butter on insides of each roll and place cut side down, on outer edges of grill to lightly toast. 8. Layer each bottom roll with divided dressed greens, a burger, a tomato, spoonfuls of cran-apple pico de gallo and top rolls. Serve and Enjoy! 6 Burgers
