1 small cucumber
½ Tbsp chopped fresh mint
1 Tbsp chopped fresh dill
½ Tbsp lemon juice
1 clove minced garlic
1 cup plain, low-fat Greek yogurt
FOR THE CHICKEN PATTIES
2 oz reduced fat feta
1 cup chopped fresh spinach
10 chopped and pitted Kalamata olives
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp dried oregano
2 cloves garlic, chopped
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
1 lb. lean ground chicken
2 tsp olive oil
2 sliced tomatoes
1 small head iceberg lettuce, cut into eight bun-sized pieces
HOW TO MAKE IT
Chop half of the cucumber into small pieces and place in small bowl; slice remaining cucumber into thin slices for sandwiches and set aside.
In large bowl, combine first nine burger ingredients. Add chicken, and mix lightly but thoroughly; shape into four burger patties.
Moisten a paper towel with oil, and using cooking tongs, rub on grill rack to coat lightly.
Add burgers and cook covered over medium heat until a meat thermometer reads 165° F (about 5-7 minutes on each side).
Serve on iceberg lettuce “buns” with tomato slices, remaining cucumber and sauce.
