Mediterranean Diet--Greek-Flavored Turkey Burgers

Greek-Flavored Turkey Burger @livligahome
Burgers are such a summertime meal. They are easy to assemble and you can grill them outside, not making your kitchen hot. Still on my discovery of Mediterranean Diet recipes, I thought it would be fun to try out a Greek-flavored turkey burger (426 cal). They were easy to make and very flavorful. The ingredients mixed with the turkey meat include fresh mint, lemon juice, red onion and feta. Once cooked the turkey burger is topped with bottled roasted red peppers. As you can see it looks visually appealing too.

To make it a meal I added baked wild fries (77 cal) and Greek Spaghetti Squash Salad (1 cup serving/80 cal) . The total calorie count for this meal was on the high side at 583. For us it was a weekend meal with family over for dinner so it worked. We were not so wild about the spaghetti squash salad and will not repeat it. The burger, however, was a winner.
