1 English cucumber, diced

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon dried mint

4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1 1/2 pounds ground turkey

1 cup hummus, preferably spicy or roasted red pepper (about a 7-ounce container)

1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

2 teaspoons ground coriander

16 mini pita pockets, preferably whole wheat, split open and warmed

2 to 3 plum tomatoes, sliced


  1. Toss the cucumber, feta, vinegar, mint, 1 tablespoon olive oil and a pinch each of salt and pepper in a bowl; cover and refrigerate.
  2. Mix the turkey, 1/2 cup hummus, the parsley and coriander in a bowl; season generously with pepper. Dampen your hands and shape the mixture into 16 small patties, about 1/2 inch thick.
  3. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil in a medium cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the patties and cook until browned and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Cook the remaining patties in the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil.
  4. Mix the remaining 1/2 cup hummus with a splash of hot water in a bowl. Spread some of the hummus on the inside of each pita; fill with a tomato slice, turkey patty and some of the cucumber mixture.
