DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, mix all burger ingredients together except for the olive oil, adjusting the salt and pepper to taste; with hands lightly mix the mixture and shape into 4 equal patties about 1 inch thick, pressing in the middle to prevent it from bulging while cooking.
  • Place the burgers in the refrigerator and allow to stand for 30 to 45 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.
  • Separate the lettuce leaves from the core and wash under running water, place on paper towels to drain; wash the bell pepper, core, seed and slice into thin strips.
  • In a large non-stick skillet, heat the olive oil, thoroughly coating the pan; add the shaped burgers and cook over medium-high heat until brown on the outside and cooked through, turning once, approximately 6 minutes per side.
  • While the burgers are cooking, place all the dipping sauce ingredients in blender jar and blend until smooth and creamy; pour prepared sauce into individual serving dishes and set aside.
  • To plate, place a couple of drained lettuce leaves on a plate, top with cooked burger, a few slices of cucumber and several slices red bell pepper. Sprinkle chopped basil on each serving. Place a dish of the dipping sauce on plate and serve.
  • The prep time allows for the 30 to 45 minute refrigeration time.
