Lamb Burger with Chunky Mint Tzatziki

This lamb burger is inspired by one of my favorite vacations: Santorini and Paros, in the Greek islands, where I ate some of the best food of my life.

The lamb burger is simple: ground lamb, grated garlic, chives, and fresh oregano. Rub with olive oil, and char on the grill (or in a sauté pan, if a grill is currently unavailable). For the tzatziki, just chunkily cut up a cucumber, some chives, and add whole oregano and mint leaves, and a small tub of Greek yogurt. Spritz in some lemon juice, and stuff warm pitas with the tzatziki and the lamb burgers.
