Cheeseburger Salad

How do we eat cheeseburgers and enjoy them if we aren't supposed to be eating processed wheat?

Cheeseburger Salad

There really isn't anything magically about this creation. So much so, I'm not sure if I'd call it a recipe, but here you go!

Make a green salad. We like Romaine or leaf lettuce, a little bit of thinly sliced or shredded carrot, green onion and sliced tomatoes.

Make some cheeseburgers. I like the grill.

Put the salad in a thin layer on a dinner plate. Put a burger in the middle. Add condiments to your liking. I always have a couple of circles of yellow mustard, ketchup and some diced dill pickles. Other fun add-ons: bacon, avocado, sauteed mushrooms, different cheeses like Swiss, bleu or feta.

Not pictured, but I usually add a little creamy salad dressing to the lettuce - ranch, thousand island or bleu cheese.

How would you make your burger salad?


  1. This looks YUMMY! Thanks for the photo!

  2. Hmm... timely - I was just contemplating burgers for dinner, but don't think I have buns on hand.
    I dunno - I kind of expected your burger to be chopped up- like on a pizza or like taco meat.
    I'm wondering if I can pass this off tonight...


tell me whatcha think!
