This recipe is full of the bright flavors of the Mediterranean. Sounds wonderful! Found at Cuisine at Home, Issue 63 Placing here for safekeeping, I want to try them real soon.

Yum! The sauce is a great topping for burgers. I seasoned mine with Emeril's Essence this time, but I think I'll go for garlic salt the next. I'll make this again for sure.

Made for "My 3 Chefs 2007" Really good burger! The topping is really yummy and easy to make. We opted for ground turkey, greek seasoning in place of the oregano, and about a teaspoon of pepper flakes (which added a nice little kick), which we mixed up directly into the meat. Also sprinkled a bit extra of both seasonings directly onto the burger before grilling, along with a little olive oil. Instead of placing the onion in the middle of two patties, I made one big patty and pressed it into the middle (see pic). We grilled the rolls, added tomato, but forgot the cucumber (which DH and I both agreed would have been a nice addition). It's great that you can make the sauce in advance, then just toss on your burgers at the last minute. Thanks for the recipe, DiScharf!
