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.
