Mediterranean Turkey Burgers

Serves 4
1 pound ground lean turkey meat
1/4 cup chopped pitted kalamata olives (bite-size chunks)
2 tsp. - 1 T dried oregano
1/4 cup chopped cheese (I prefer tangy white cheddar, but feta is great too)
salt and pepper to taste (cheese and olives are salty, so go light on the salt)

-Mix all ingredients in bowl, and form into 4 patties
-Heat grill pan to medium high heat and lightly coat in garlic olive oil
-Grill each side for about 4-5 minutes, or until cooked through.
-Garnish with lemon mayo (recipe follows), and sliced roasted red peppers
-Place on top of a bed of greens with lightly salted tomatoes

Lemon Mayo:
1 T mayo
1/4 lemon (about 2 tsp. of juice)
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
