My Big Fat Greek Burger

If you know me, you know I love Greek flavors. Did you see this dip I made a while back? It’s one of my faves.

I could put feta cheese on just about anything. My husband is not happy about this; he does not like feta cheese. See, his favorite seasoning is ketchup.

Oh, no. This girl’s palate needs waaaayyy more than that.

I just don’t understand the man. He’s a mozzarella lover – he can eat a big block of whole milk mozzarella like an apple. I have no idea how his bowels manage to move. Even though he’s a little picky, I do know how to make him happy. Pasta with butter, garlic, salt and pepper would completely satisfy him.

I just don’t get that.

This burger is a beautiful combination of beef, Greek salad, tzatziki sauce and feta cheese. It’s scrumptious and a great twist on the traditional cheeseburger.

For my Greek salad, I roughly chopped green bell pepper, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, green olives and feta cheese tossed with a balsamic and tarragon vinaigrette. Tarragon is another one of my favorite flavors; it’s a game changer.
