  • 1 large Young Green Onions
  • 1 oz Baby Spinach
  • 0 1/4 oz Dill
  • 1 oz Feta Cheese
  • 0 1/4 tsp Oregano
  • 0 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 0 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 8 ounce Ground Beef (85% Lean / 15% Fat)
  • 1 medium Zucchini
  • 2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 0 1/2 tsp Lemon Zest
  • 2 teaspoon(s) Lemon juice, fresh
  • 1 Italian Tomatoes
  • 4 Large Leaf (15g) Butterhead Lettuce (Includes Boston and Bibb types), Raw


  1. Finely chop the green onion and place in a large bowl. Roughly chop the baby spinach and add to the bowl with the green onion.  Remove enough dill leaves from their stems to yield 1 teaspoon of roughly chopped dill and add to the bowl. Add the crumbled feta cheese, ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper and the dried oregano. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
  2. Pat dry the ground beef with paper towels and add to the bowl with the spinach mixture, mixing to combine. Form the ground beef mixture into two patties.  Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and when hot, add the burger patties and cook for 5 to 6 minutes per side until cooked through.
  3. Cut the zucchini into ¼-inch diced pieces. While the burgers are cooking, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat.  Add the zucchini and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes to soften and get slightly browned.  Season with the lemon zest and juice and ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  4. Slice the tomato into ¼-inch sliced rounds. Place the burgers between two slices of bibb lettuce and top with the sliced tomatoes.  Place a burger on each plate and arrange the sautéed zucchini next to the burgers. Enjoy!
