Greek Turkey Burger w/ Tzatziki Sauce

Ingredients:
Tzatziki Sauce:
- 1 container (6 oz) Greek Fat Free plain yogurt (They were out of Greek, so I just used plain nonfat yogurt.)
- 1/4 cup chopped cucumber
- 3 tablespoons chopped red onion
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill weed
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- ¼ tsp salt

Burgers:
- 1 lb lean ground turkey
- 1 cup crumbled fat free feta cheese (4 oz)
- 1/3 cup chopped red onion
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill weed
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 4 EarthGrains Whole Wheat Thin Buns
- 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
- fresh lettuce leaves

Directions:
In small bowl, mix 1/2 cup yogurt and remaining sauce ingredients; refrigerate until serving. Heat gas or charcoal grill. In medium bowl, mix all burger ingredients and remaining yogurt. Shape mixture into 4 patties, about 1/2 inch thick.
Place patties on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning after 5 minutes, until thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 160°F. Place burgers in buns with tomato slices and sauce.
If you choose to broil your burgers instead, broil patties with tops about 6 inches from heat 4 minutes; turn patties. Cook 6 to 8 minutes longer or until meat thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 160°F.
Place a patty on one of the sandwich thins, top with 1 tbsp of Tzatziki sauce, a few tomato slices and a few fresh lettuce leaves.

This is another awesome Weight Watchers recipe that doesn't taste like it! Tastes like something you'd get at a yummy Greek restaurant.
Entire recipe makes 4 burgers
Serving size is 1 Greek Turkey burger with bun, 1 tbsp Tzatziki sauce and lettuce/tomato
Each serving = 4 Point Total
