Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground bison
  • 1/2 cup cooked spinach, squeezed dry
  • 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
  • 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
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 4 French rolls, or 4-inch pieces of baguette, preferably whole-wheat, split and toasted
  • 16 thin slices English cucumber
  • 8 slices vine-ripened tomato
  • 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.
  3. Oil the grill rack (see Tip, below). Grill the burgers until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 155 degrees F, 5 to 6 minutes per side.
  4. To prepare yogurt sauce: Combine yogurt, lemon zest and juice, 1 teaspoon dill and mint in a small bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  5. Assemble the burgers on rolls with the yogurt sauce, cucumber, tomato and onion.
  6. Tips: Note: Greek-style yogurt is made by removing the whey from cultured milk, which gives the yogurt an extra-thick and creamy texture. Look for it with other yogurt in large supermarkets.
  7. Tip: To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)
