Mediterranean Salmon Burgers

It’s hard to believe, but I am coming up on my one year anniversary of the blog!  It’s been a exciting year but I wouldn’t have had it any other way.  One of my first posts was a Greek-style lamb burger with homemade whole wheat pita bread and tzatziki sauce. Today, I’m doing a different take on that with fresh Mediterranean Salmon Burgers. I think salmon is a fish that most people love, but sometimes have difficulty figuring out ways of preparing it. In these burgers, the salmon is chopped into 1/2 inch chunks and tossed with fresh flavors like mint, chives, and lemon. This is so healthy and delicious, it’s perfect for a nutritious weeknight meal that even the kiddos will love! Stay tuned for a future post of a possible giveaway to celebrate my one year anniversary. Also, don’t forget to check out the original posts linked above for the pita and tzatziki sauce recipes to use with your salmon burgers!
