  • 1 cup watercress or mixed spring greens
  • Seasoning:
  • 1 tablespoon tablespoon curry powder

  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime peel

  • Combine ground beef and seasoning ingredients in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 3/4-inch thick patties. Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals.
