Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Finely chop half the spinach. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add chopped spinach to the dry pan. Cook, stirring often, until spinach wilts. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to cool slightly.
While spinach cools slightly, core, then cut pepper into 1/4-inch slices. Zest, then juice half the lemon (whole lemon for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lemon into wedges. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Cut tomatoes into 1/2-inch pieces.
Add breadcrumbs, cooked spinach, Lemon-Pepper Seasoning, lemon zest, garlic and half the feta to a medium bowl. Add pork, then combine. (TIP: If you prefer more tender patties, add an egg to the mixture!) Form pork mixture into eight 2-inch-wide patties (16 patties for 4 ppl).
Reheat the same pan (from step 1) over medium. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil, then patties. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, cook patties in 2 batches, using 1/2 tbsp oil per batch.) Pan-fry until cooked through, 3-4 min per side.** (TIP: Reduce heat to medium-low if patties are browning too quickly.)Transfer patties to a plate, then cover to keep warm.
Meanwhile, add lemon juice and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then whisk to combine. Add tomatoes, peppers, remaining feta and remaining spinach, then toss to combine.
Divide patties and salad between plates. Squeeze a lemon wedge over top, if desired.
