  • 16 oz lean ground beef I used 93% lean
  • ¼ cup crumbled low-fat Feta cheese
  • ¼ cup Kalamata olives pitted and chopped
  • ¼ cup roasted red peppers chopped (from the jar)
  • 2 tablespoon Sabra garlic and herb spread
  • 1 tablespoon good quality balsamic vinegar
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 8 large pieces butter lettuce
  • 1 to mato sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Sabra sea salt spread for the bread
  • 4 whole grain artisan flatbreads I love the high protein ones
  • extra balsamic vinegar for drizzling


  • Combine beef, cheese, olives, red peppers, garlic and herb Sabra spread, 1 tablespoon balsamic and salt and pepper, to taste in a large bowl
  • Work the mixture well to get everything mixed well
  • Form the mixture into 4 burger patties and refrigerate for about 30 minutes to set
  • Meanwhile, heat your grill to medium-high
  • Cook burgers about 3-4 minutes per side for medium-rare (for safety reasons, cook until meat reaches 165 degrees F)
  • Spread Sabra spread onto flatbread, about 1 teaspoon for each (more if your heart desires)
  • Top with butter lettuce, then burger, tomato, spinach and a little extra drizzle of balsamic vinegar
  • Serve immediately
