Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 16 minutes
Total Time 36 minutes
Servings 4



  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 1/4 cup fresh spinach finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 1 large sweet onion grated
  • 1 egg whisked
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • 1 1/2 cups grated cucumber (from about 1 medium cucumber)
  • 2 cups thick whole milk Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons fresh dill



  • In a small bowl crack egg and whisk egg until smooth
  • In a large bowl combine all of the Turkey Spinach Feta burger ingredients plus the whisked egg and mix well.
  • Form into 4 patties. In the center of each patty, make a small dent with your thumb (this will help them retain their shape).
  • Grill for 10 minutes on one side, flip and grill for another 6-8 min or until cooked through (160ºF internal temp).


  • Start by grating the cucumber. Using your cheese grater!
  • Next, squeeze the water out of the grated cucumber. This step is essential for making a creamy tzatziki – if you skip it, the water from the cucumber will cause your sauce to separate. Place the cucumber on a towel (or paper towel) and gently squeeze out the excess water directly over the sink.
  • Then, stir everything together! In a medium bowl, combine the squeezed cucumber with the yogurt, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, olive oil, salt, and dill. Chill until ready to use.
