Greek-inspired Salmon Burgers

Last week I crafted an easy mid-week dinner that is light enough to eat during the recent heat wave we've been so fortunate to endure.  Whole Foods was having a special on salmon burgers for $2.99, which I couldn't resist (I'm a sucker for a protein-based meal in this price range). I ended up toasting a whole wheat pita and baking the burgers at 400 degrees for about 8-10 minutes. I topped the toasted pita with the salmon burger, cucumbers, and drizzled with Whole Food's Tzatziki Sauce and fresh Greek feta. As a side, I sauteed broccoli and kale with olive oil, lemon juice, and a splash of balsamic vinegar.  The entire meal was quite inexpensive and also paired nicely with a glass of chilled Rose. Keep a look out for these salmon burgers; they're quite versatile and tasty.
