You can prolong the life of fresh herbs by finely chopping them, packing them into ice cube trays, then adding just enough water to freeze them. There are also little blocks of herbs that are popping up in grocery stores everywhere. You can use the basil cubes to create quick and easy pestos with virtually no effort.
Preheat a grill to high. In a small bowl, stir the sandwich spread and basil until combined. Season both sides of the patty with salt. Grill for 1 to 2 minutes per side for medium rare, or until desired doneness is reached. About 1 minute before the burger is done, add the cheese and melt for 1 minute.
Meanwhile, place the muffin halves on the grill away from the direct flame to warm them. Place the muffin bottom, cut side up, on a serving plate. Top it with the arugula, the burger, and then the tomato. Spread the pesto mayo evenly over the inside of the top of the English muffin and place it atop the burger. Serve immediately.
