It's getting cold in the Bay (48 degrees in the Am!) and even colder on the East Coast (snow?!), so I am looking back on warmer days and delicious summer meals. This DIY sort-of-burger-bar and golden watermelon salad combo can still be made in the cold months, in under 30 minutes, with plenty of time left to hide under the covers.
1 lb quality ground meat of your choice or veggie patties
Fresh herbs - mint, parsley, dill, cilantro
Sriracha Mayo sauce (Veganaise, sriracha, and splash of lemon combined to your desired spice level)
If you are using veggie patties, cook as instructed.
For ground meat, combine with 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp tamari, 1 tsp coconut aminos, 1/2 finely diced onion, and a sprinkle of chopped fresh herbs of your choice (mint is great with lamb!).
Cook a small spoonful to try and add salt and pepper if needed. Adjust taste as desired.
Form patties and fry in skillet until cooked through. In the meantime, slice the cucmbers, carrots, and onions.
Prepare sriracha mayo.
To prepare watermelon salad, slice watermelon into cubes. Add feta and mint until you achieve taste preference. I do not measure when I cook so the portions are up to you!
