1/1 Photo of Greek Burger With Arugula and Feta
This is a delicious and healthy meal in one. Using the pita in the meat makes it so moist! Ground turkey could be used instead of lam, and any kind of lettuce can be substituted for the arugula. This recipe came from Self magazine, and it is one of our favorites!
