Mediterranean Buffalo Burgers

Ingredients

1 cucumber
1 medium red onion
4 sun-dried tomato halves in oil, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons agave nectar (or honey)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 1/4 (12-oz) packages ground buffalo
1 teaspoon salt-free garlic/herb seasoning
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons reduced-fat crumbled feta cheese
4 whole wheat thin sandwich buns
2 cups baby arugula leaves

Prep

  • Preheat grill (or grill pan).
  • Slice one-half each cucumber and onion thinly (about 1 cup each). Chop tomatoes (about 3 tablespoons).

Steps

  1. Combine in small bowl: rice vinegar, agave nectar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; stir in cucumber and onions and set aside.
  2. Combine meat, herb seasoning, pepper, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; form into 4 patties. Place meat in grill pan (or on grill); grill 2–3 minutes on each side and until 160°F. Combine feta and tomatoes until blended; divide over top of patties, then remove from heat.
  3. Toast buns lightly. Assemble burgers in this order: bun, arugula leaves, cucumber mixture, burger, more cucumbers (optional), and top of bun. Serve.
