2 6-inch pitas, split and quartered

1 pound lean ground beef sirloin

1 red onion (1/2 grated, 1/2 sliced)

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for the grill

2 tablespoons harissa (chile paste)

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Juice of 1/2 lemon

2 beefsteak or heirloom tomatoes (about 1 pound), cut into 1-inch wedges

2 Persian cucumbers, sliced 1/2 inch thick

1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro or mint (or a combination)

1 small heart romaine lettuce, torn

1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese (about 2 ounces)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the pitas on a baking sheet and bake until crisp and golden, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat a grill to medium high. Combine the ground beef, grated red onion, 1 tablespoon each olive oil and harissa, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl. Mix with your hands until just combined. Form into four 1-inch-thick patties; set aside.
  3. Whisk the lemon juice with the remaining 1 tablespoon harissa in another large bowl. Gradually whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add the tomatoes, cucumbers, herbs and sliced red onion; toss to coat. Set aside.
  4. Brush the grill grates with oil. Grill the burgers about 4 minutes per side for medium rare. Add the lettuce and pita wedges to the salad bowl; toss. Top each serving of salad with the feta and burgers.
