If you are thinking, "why would I ever want to eat a burger salad?", we promise this recipe will change your mind.
Lean ground beef or turkey, cooked
Vegan or regular mayonnaise
Red onion, sliced into rings
Cheddar cheese (optional)
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet. Add ground beef, salt, and pepper. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until browned, breaking up the meat into bite-sized pieces while stirring. Set aside to cool until just warm (otherwise the salad greens will wilt).
Make the dressing: whisk together mayonnaise, mustard, relish, and ketchup.
In a large bowl, toss together romaine, onion, cheese, tomatoes, and avocado. Add the dressing and toss to coat.
Serve the dressed salad on a plate and top with 4 oz of meat and 1 oz shredded cheese (optional).
