Preheat grill to medium-high.  In a bowl, mix together: bison, spinach, feta, olives, pepper, garlic, dill, and oregano.  Form into patties.  Place patties on a hot grill, turn only once.  Bison is very lean so it will cook quickly!  Be sure not to overcook!

For the sauce: mix all ingredients and allow to set for at least a 1/2 hour.

*This recipe used gluten-free dinner rolls as slider buns made by Outside The Breadbox.  Their products can be purchased at a lovely little store in Loveland, CO called Granny's Gluten Free Zone.
