  1. Heat up a grill or grill a pan on high. Season burger patties with salt, lemon pepper, oregano, granulated garlic and onion and grill until pink. This usually takes about 4-6 minutes per side for medium.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together lemon juice and yogurt until it's creamy. Add grated cucumbers, chopped dill and 1 teaspoon of granulated garlic. Then, season it with salt and mix to combine.
  3. Assemble the burgers by spreading the bun bottoms with the yogurt mixture and top it with a patty, roasted peppers, cucumber, red onion and feta cheese. Add the buns on top and it's ready to serve.
