  • 1 large Young Green Onions
  • 1 oz Baby Spinach
  • 1/4 oz Dill
  • 1 Italian Tomatoes
  • 1 fruit (2-1/8" dia) Lemon
  • 1 medium Zucchini
  • 8 ounce Ground Beef (85% Lean / 15% Fat)
  • 1 oz Feta Cheese
  • 1/4 tsp Oregano
  • 4 oz Butterhead Lettuce (Includes Boston and Bibb Types)
  • 2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper


  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.
  2. Slice the tomato into ¼-inch sliced rounds; set aside.  Zest the lemon into a small bowl. Juice the lemon into the same bowl, discarding any seeds; set aside.  Cut the zucchini into ¼-diced pieces; set aside.
  3. Pat dry the ground beef with paper towels and add to the bowl with the spinach mixture. Add the crumbled feta cheese, ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper and the dried oregano. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
