*Nutrition information based on beef burgers.
- Heat oiled grill to medium-high heat. Combine 1/2 cup of the olives (use olives without chopping so you can really see them), meat, breadcrumbs and pepper; mix well. Shape to form four 1/2-inch thick patties. Grill on covered grill or in a ridged grill pan over medium heat 5 minutes per side or until no longer pink in center.
- Meanwhile, combine remaining olives, sun dried tomatoes and basil; mix well. Stir in cheese. Serve burgers in rolls topped with the relish and lettuce.
