This week Smarty Marty is keeping it easy with this lamb burger and olive salad… so lets get dinner started by gathering up these ingredients
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 pound ground lamb
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1 15-oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
8 cups mixed salad greens
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 small cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/3 cup pitted black olives, halved
1/3 cup crumbled feta (about 2 oz.), optional
Preheat gas grill to medium-high. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. garlic powder.
Combine lamb, allspice and remaining garlic powder and salt in a medium bowl and mix to incorporate. Form into 8 1/2-inch-thick patties. Grill patties, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer reads 160ºF, 5 to 7 minutes total.
Place chickpeas, greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, olives and feta, if desired, in a large bowl. Toss with dressing. Divide among 4 dinner plates. Top each portion with 2 lamb patties.
