This was a good family meal. Loved the tzatziki over the burger-tasted great. We ate this with a salad, and Erin Ecklund's Italian Potatoes Italian Potatoes.

Very good recipe! I opted for a bed of spinach instead of a pita, but the minted tzatziki was what really made this amazing! This was my first attempt at making a dish like this and it was easy and very tasty! I also sprinkled feta cheese on top but it really didn't need it as the sauce can stand on its own. When I went for seconds I didn't include the feta. :)
