I’ve decided that salmon burgers are my new freezer staple. I love the idea of having salmon once a week and having burgers in the freezer makes this so attainable. I can take them out as needed, they are ready in minutes and obviously very tasty.

They can be dressed up or dressed down, depending on the occasion. Greek salsa is on my “dressed up” side and is the perfect topping for the perfect burger. Try my orzo salad to round out the meal!

Greek Salsa - for 2 salmon burgers

  • 1/2 cucumber, seeded and chopped into small pieces
  • 1 Tbsp red onion, finely chopped
  • 1-2 Tbsp feta cheese crumbles
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • pepper

Combine all ingredients in small bowl and toss together. Set aside and split mixture between burgers.

    I made a cucumber feta salsa like that for a New Year’s Eve party. What a great pairing with the salmon burger! Must try.
