I am trying to eat healthier these days. The word "healthier" means different things to many of us. For me, I'm attempting to exercise control when it comes to portion size and cut down on processed sugar and carbohydrates (I actually turned down ice cream last night!). It's also, finally summer in Seattle, so perhaps, the plates naturally get a lighter makeover.
Last night for dinner I decided to make these Lamb Burgers with Pesto
to go along with a Watermelon Salad with Feta, Basil and Balsamic Glaze (inspired by this similar watermelon salad).
Dinner was a hit! The plates looked vibrant with jeweled cubes of watermelon, sprinkled with ribbons of basil and little morsels of feta cheese. The lamb burgers turned out especially flavorful, most likely because of the fresh homemade pesto I used. If you don't have pesto on hand, feel free to add minced garlic, chopped basil and a touch of oil to the burger mix.
