While few things can compete with a classic cheeseburger, it’s hard not to play with the burger template. From bun to patty to condiments and toppings, there is so much to play with on a burger. The flavor combinations are quite literally endless. From peanut butter pork burgers to hot sauce-soaked tofu numbers, I’ve taken the burger to some strange (potentially blasphemous) places over the years. But, oddly, I’d never thought to take the burger in a Greek direction. This is particularly strange given that I grew up next to a Greek family that owned a diner. Hopefully, today’s Chicken Souvlaki Burger with Whipped Feta makes up for this glaring oversight. The only thing I could think when I bit into this beauty was “What took me so long”? So let’s not wait any longer. Let’s make these beauties!

Spring is here at long last, so why doesn’t it feel like it? Well, it could be in full swing where you are, but here in Canada we recently shoveled our way out of a snowstorm. I wish I could say this was a freak incident. It is not. If you grew up in Canada, you’ve had your heart broken by a late March blizzard. You’ve probably also been burned by the ever-charming April version as well. So if spring snow is par for the course for us hearty canucks, we should be fine with it, right?! No. We’re grumpy and impatient as all hell, or at least I am. The only upside I see to this bonus winter is the opportunity to squeeze a few more comfort foods into the season. Dishes like today’s Smoked Duck Split Pea Soup.

It’s finally getting chilly here. I am equal parts sad and excited about this meteorological development. On the one hand, I’m glad to be not continuously sweating. And I’m chuffed to make friends with my hoodies again. But on the other hand, I know what fall leads to. It leads to winter and because I live in Canada, that is a less-than-appetizing thought. I saw someone on Instagram describe autumn as the seasonal equivalent to the “Sunday Scaries” and I think it fits. But there’s nothing I can do to keep the winter at bay, so I can at least find solace in the cozy comfort foods I love. Now, obviously, today’s Chicken Tostada Cobb Salad doesn’t fall under that category. But I thought I’d squeeze one last summer-friendly meal in before I bid adieu to summer.

Let me introduce you to the two dishes that inspired this plate. But before I do that, let’s talk about what this plate is.
