1 pound ground lamb (ground beef may be substituted)
1 tablespoon garlic, minced (about 2 cloves)
1 ½ teaspoon olive oil

1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon smoked paprika
1 cup plain low-fat Greek-style yogurt
½ cucumber seeded and finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons finely chopped herbs (mint or cilantro work well)
Salt to taste
In a medium bowl, combine ground meat, seasonings and olive oil. Form the seasoned meat into four patties, put them on a plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, squeeze the water out of the cucumber. In a small bowl, stir the cucumber together with the remaining sauce ingredients and refrigerate, allowing the flavors to meld.
Preheat grill to a medium high temperature. Cook lamb patties for about 5 minutes each side or until an internal temperature of 140 degrees is reached. Serve on a bun with a dollop of tzatziki sauce. Makes 4 burgers.
