Greek Burgers with Feta-Cucumber Yogurt Sauce√

Makes 6.

Note: Fresh herbs, pine nuts and a generous addition of chopped spinach give the standard burger a decidedly Greek spin. While this version calls for ground beef, lamb works well, too. To toast pine nuts, warm them in a dry pan over medium heat until fragrant. From Meredith Deeds.

1/4 c. grated cucumber (peeled and seeded)

• 1/3 c. crumbled feta cheese
