Greek Burger with Cucumber Dressing

SAVE THIS RECIPE SAVED! REMOVE THIS RECIPE ADD TO MEAL PLAN

This is a spin on a traditional hamburger using Greek flavors and a cucumber dressing made with plain yogurt. It’s a great way to introduce some new flavors in a familiar kid-friendly way. My husband is allergic to beef (hives and everything!), so we often make portabello mushroom, bean or turkey burgers. We recently found a little farm in our community that sells lamb, so we thought we would give their ground lamb a try. You can easily substitute ground beef in the recipe if you prefer. Tonight we served our burgers on a white whole wheat bun and dressed it with the yogurt dressing, red onions, a slice of tomato, and lettuce. We also had some great veggie kabobs on the side. Yum!!!
