BURGERS
  • 1 pound ground bison

  • Earthbound Farm Organic Baby Spinach
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese, preferably sheep's-milk
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

YOGURT SAUCE
  • 3/4 cup nonfat or low-fat Greek-style plain yogurt, (see Note)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

BUN & TOPPINGS
  • 4 French rolls, or 4-inch pieces of baguette, preferably whole-wheat, split and toasted
  • 16 thin slices English cucumber
  • Cucumbers Greenhouse
  • 8 slices vine-ripened tomato
  • Tomatoes Regular
  • 4 thin round slices red onion


Directions
  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Place bison, spinach, feta, 2 teaspoons dill, oregano, cumin, garlic, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a large mixing bowl. Gently combine without overmixing. Form into 4 oval-shaped patties roughly the size of the rolls.
