Turkey Burger Pitas with Tahini Sauce

Fast and flavorful turkey burger recipe adapted from Cooking Light - September 2010 edition. 

1/2 cup plain 2% Greek-style yogurt
1 Tablespoon tahini (sesame seed paste)
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove; minced
1/4 cup chopped green onions
3 Tablespoons parsley; finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 lb ground lean turkey
Cooking spray
2 whole wheat pitas, cut in half
Tomato slices

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. 
Combine onions, parsley, salt, onion powder and turkey in a large bowl. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2 inch- thick patty. 
Heat a grill pan or large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray and add patties to the pan. Cook for 4 minutes on each side or until done.
Line each pita half with patty (I sliced cooked patties in half), tomato slices and tahini sauce.
