Ingredients

    For Burgers:

    1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled feta cheese
    1 tablespoon minced red onion
    2 tablespoons commercial pesto
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 pound ground turkey breast
    1 garlic clove, minced
    2 cups arugula, or your favorite kind of lettuce
    2 (6-inch) whole-wheat pitas, grilled and halved

    For Sauce:

    Salt
    Freshly ground black pepper

    **nutritional info based in burger and sauce not including Pita.

Directions

Preparation:

Combine first 8 ingredients in a bowl; mix until combined. Divide mixture into 4 portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick oval patty (the shape should fit into a pita half).

Heat grill or a nonstick grill pan to medium-high heat. If using a non-stick grill pan, coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties to grill; cook 6 minutes on each side or until done.

While the patties are cooking, make the tzatziki sauce: Combine 1/2 cup plain low-fat, Greek-style yogurt; 1/4 cup finely chopped seeded cucumber; 1/4 teaspoon salt; and 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper.

Place 1 patty and 1/2 cup lettuce in each pita half, with a healthy dollop of the tzatziki sauce.

Number of Servings: 4
