A few days ago my favorite butcher shop had a row of lamb burgers, pre-made into patties, seasoned with Greek flavors. Sounded like the beginning of a new meal to try!
So we combined the lamb burgers with pita bread, olive tampanad and hummus. Slathered the burgers with Tzatziki sauce, thinly sliced onion, tomatoes and cucumbers. Serve with a good beer (we choose a Firestone Walker). What a great meal…definitely worth repeating.
Tzatziki sauce recipe
(found a magazine picked up on our last Walla Walla wine trip)
1 500 ml of Greek yogurt
1/2 English cucumber, grated in the big holes of a box grater and squeezed in a paper towel to remove extra moisture
Juice of one fresh lemon
1 garlic clove, crushed
2-3 tbl chopped fresh dill
1 tbl chopped fresh mint, optional
1 tbl olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
Mix in bowl. Taste, add more lemon or salt as needed. Drizzle the surface with olive oil. Enjoy!
