Ground lamb can be mixed with all manner of flavorings, including piquant kalamata olives, and still taste very much like lamb.
1 cup onion, diced
1 (large clove) garlic, minced
2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons kalamata olives, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped
vegetable oil cooking spray
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook for about 2 minutes, or until they begin to soften. Add garlic and cook for 2 or 3 minutes longer, or until the onions are tender. Set aside to cool.
Combine the lamb, parsley, olives, mint, and cooled onions in a large bowl. Using your hands, mix well. Form into 6 patties. Refrigerate until ready to grill.
Prepare a charcoal or gas grill. Lightly spray the grill rack with vegetable oil cooking spray. The coals should be hot.
Grill the burgers for about 7 minutes. Turn and grill for about 6 minutes longer for medium-well burgers. Serve with the salsa.
