Here's a Summer Lamb Burger for the grill..

Lamb Burgers with Pickled Beets & Dill Aioli
1 lb lamb
1 tablespoon minced fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dried
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons sliced green onion tops or scallions
1/2 teaspoon salt
fresh ground pepper
4 rolls or hamburger buns
lettuce, escarole, or other green

Dill Aioli
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup minced fresh dill or 2 tablespoons dried
salt to taste

Pickled Beets
Enough thinly sliced beets to fill a 1 quart jar
1 cup warm as it will come out of the tap water
½ cup rice vinegar (white wine vinegar could be substituted)
6 Tablespoons sugar
2 ¼ teaspoons salt

Make the beets at least 1 day in advance.

Dissolve sugar and salt in the warm water, add vinegar, and pour over beets. Can be eaten the next day or “cured” for up to a week in the fridge before serving.

Preheat grill to medium high heat if grilling. 

Use your hands to mix together the lamb, dill, onion tops or scallions, salt, pepper, and garlic. Divide into four patties, about 1 inch thick. Grill over medium high heat 3 – 4 minutes per side for medium rare. If using a cast iron skillet, cook burgers in canola oil over medium high heat for the same amount of time.

Whisk together aioli ingredients, taste and season with salt.

Assemble burgers, with aioli, beets, and greens on a toasted bun and serve.
