All You Lamb Burgers with Greek Salad

In the last 6 months I have been making an attempt to encourage my two young sons to eat a larger variety of vegetables. Most weeknights I don't have the time to make a separate vegetable dish in addition to the main course, so I look for recipes which incorporate vegetables and protein. Burgers are a popular protein choice in my household, but very few recipes use vegetables as anything other than a topping or coleslaw. I was pleased when the July issue of All You magazine had a recipe for Lamb Burgers with Greek Salad.

There are 13 ingredients in this recipe, all of which I was easily able to find at my local grocery store. The prep took me approximately 10 minutes, with a total time of 20 minutes. I grind my own meat, which I did in the morning, which took another 10-15 minutes. I used an indoor grill for the burgers; I am still trying to convince my husband to scrape and paint our outdoor charcoal grill before it can be used for the season. For the salad greens, I used bagged baby lettuce.

This is a very quick recipe to prepare. The flavors of the burger and salad work well together and are a nice compliment. The star of the dish is the dressing, which is delicious and has a nice citrus taste. This would be a great weekday meal, with no need for a vegetable side dish.
