4 servings

* PLUS Grilling Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 zucchini
  • 3 tbsp Italian salad dressing
  • 4 frozen or homemade burgers
  • 4 pitas or hamburger buns
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta
  • 1/4 cup tzatziki
  • fresh basil

Instructions

  • Lightly oil grill and heat barbecue to medium. Slice tomatoes into thick rounds. Thickly slice zucchini lengthwise. Brush both with Italian salad dressing.
  • Place veggies and burgers on grill. Barbecue with lid closed until burgers are done as you like, 5 to 6 min per side. Turn veggies often until grill marks form, a total of 5 to 8 min. Remove from grill as they are done. Then place pitas ¿ we like pocketless Greek-style ones ¿ or buns on grill to warm, if you like.
  • Place burgers on pitas or in buns along with grilled tomatoes and zucchini. Sprinkle with feta and dollop with tzatziki. Garnish with basil, if you like.
