Ingredients for the cucumber sauce:

2 cups plain Greek yogurt
½ cucumber
1 lemon
2 Tbsp. fresh dill
Salt and pepper to taste

For the burgers:
1 lb grass-fed ground beef
4 hamburger buns
Cucumber slices
Tomato slices
Red onion slices
Spinach or greens of your choice
Feta cheese
Pinch of ground oregano
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Grate cucumber and squeeze between paper towels to remove excess moisture.
2. In a small bowl, mix grated cucumber with Greek yogurt and juice from one lemon.
3. Finely chop dill and mix in along with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
4. For the burgers, form four patties from ground beef while allowing a grill pan to warm over medium high heat.
5. Once the pan is hot, sprinkle the salt, pepper and ground oregano on each patty. Cook for 3-5 minutes per side until desired doneness is achieved.
6. To assemble burgers, spread cucumber sauce on each side of a hamburger bun (or lettuce wrap!). Layer cucumber slices, tomato, red onion and greens and patty. Top with chunks of feta cheese. Recipe from therubykitchen.com
