Souvlaki burgers with Greek salad

Method

  • Heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and gently saute the onion and 2 crushed garlic cloves until softish. Transfer the vegies to a large bowl and mix with the lamb mince, cumin, paprika, oregano, parsley, a pinch of salt and ½ cup yoghurt until well combined. 
  • In another bowl, gently toss the celery, cucumber, capsicum, tomatoes, red onion, olives and feta with seasonings, a little oil and the juice of ½ lemon. Set aside. 
  • To make the tzatziki, combine the remaining yoghurt with the juice of ½ lemon, the mint and 2 crushed garlic cloves. Taste for seasoning and also set aside. 
  • Then form the mince mixture into patties, lightly flour and cook in a layer of hot oil. Drain well on kitchen paper towels. 
  • Place the pitas on individual plates, smear with tzatziki and mound with a generous amount of the salad. Then top with 2 patties, sprinkle with a little more tzatziki and serve with lemon wedges on the side.
