Lamb Burgers with Shepards Salad and Homemade Tzaziki Sauce

Lamb is a flavorful meat used frequently in Mediterranean cooking , but not nearly as popular as it should be in the United States. Lamb is an excellent source of high quality protein, B Vitamins and minerals such as zinc and selenium. The higher fat content of this meat is in the form as CLA ( conjugated linoleic acid) a healthy fat that actually is suggested by recent research to be cancer fighting and fat fighting. I personally love lamb any way I can get it and I hope after you try this recipe you will love it as much as I do.
