Cucumber Slaw

  • 2 Persian cucumbers, (shaved into ribbons with a vegetable peeler)
  • 1/4 small red onion, (thinly sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil 
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon



  • 1 pound ground American Lamb
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 5 slider buns, split and toasted



In a medium bowl, combine the cucumbers, red onion, parsley, dill, salt, olive oil, and lemon juice and toss to combine. 

In a large bowl, combine the ground lamb, salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, red pepper flakes, and feta. Mix until well combined. Shape into five 3.5 ounce patties. 

Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the lamb burgers and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, without moving, until a crust forms. Flip the burger over and continue to cook for 4 to 6 minutes until desired degree of doneness: 145˚F for medium-rare, 160˚F for medium or 170˚F for well.

Serve the lamb burgers on the slider buns and top with the slaw.
