Mediterranean Turkey Burgers with Tzatkiki

Mediterranean Turkey Burgers
1 lb ground turkey meat ( I used ground turkey breast)*
1/4 cup crumbled feta
2 1/2 tbsp roasted red peppers, finely chopped
1 1/2 tbsp sundried tomatoes in olive oil, finely chopped
1 tsp Greek seasoning
Combine ingredients with your hands to evenly distribute all of the flavors throughout the meat.  Make into 4 equal patties.  Grill burgers until cooked through.
*If you feel your burgers are too dry or don't stay together, you can add one beaten egg to the mixture before grilling. Mine did not need this! 

1 English cucumber, peeled and grated 
1 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 garlic cloves, pressed or very finely minced
juice of 1 1/2 lemons
2 tbsp of fresh dill, minced
salt and pepper, to taste

Drain grated cucumber through a mesh strainer overnight or for at least 8 hours.  Mix all ingredients until flavors are combine.  Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Serve burger, tzatkiki and purple onion in a lettuce leaf along with a delicious glass of rosé.
