2. Prepare dressing: In a medium bowl, whisk yogurt, vinegar, feta, mint, oil, sugar and remaining 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper. Slice remaining onion into half-moons.

3. Grill burger patties 12 to 14 minutes, turning halfway through. Toss kale, spinach, sliced onion, cucumber and tomatoes. Place 3 cups salad on each plate and top with a burger patty. Serve with dressing and warm pita on the side.
