Greek Lamb Burgers

Fresh rosemary, oregano and lemon rind harmonize with the richness of lamb and feta cheese in this burger. If you don't want to make the Greek sauce, serve with a drizzle of plain, fat-free yogurt. Tuck tomato slices and lettuce leaves into the pita pockets, if desired. Serve with fresh fruit and lemonade.

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 stuffed pita half)
