- 1 shallot, diced
- 1 scallion, green and white parts, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic confit*
- 1 Teaspoon dried parsley flakes
- 1 Teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 Teaspoon dried dill
- 1/4 Teaspoon crushed coriander
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 4 leaves arugula

- 2 Tablespoons crumbled feta
- 1 Teaspoon dill
- 1 Tablespoon mint
- 1 Teaspoon lemon juice

Preheat the grill over medium-high heat. Coat the grill with olive oil.
Grill the onion until there are grill marks on both sides, about 3-5 minutes per side. Remove from the heat. Combine the lamb, shallot, scallion, garlic confit, parsley flakes, oregano, dill, and coriander in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix well. Form a ½-inch-thick patty (do not overhandle the meat).
Brush the grill with more olive oil and grill to medium-rare, about 3 minutes per side. Meanwhile, combine the onion, arugula, olives, sun-dried tomato, feta, dill, mint, lemon juice, and olive oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix well to combine. Place the patty on the bun, top with the salad, and serve.
