Cheeseburger Salad

Thursday, June 4, 2015


Two weeks ago I posted a picture of my cheeseburger salad and I got a ton of comments on how good it looked. So, of course, I figured you all needed the recipe! 

When I went away scrapbooking for the weekend a few months ago, someone told me about how she puts her cheeseburgers on a salad instead of using a bun and, I finally got around to trying it! You guys, this is a huge salad and super filling! Here is how I put it all together! 



Ingredients

Cooked Ground beef patty 
Onion 
Mushroom
Red Wine Vinegar *optional
Lettuce
Tomato
Carrot
Pickles - I used sour
1 TBSP - shredded cheese

Instructions

Cook beef patty on the grill or any other way you like to make it. 

While the burger is cooking, chop onion and mushrooms and put them in a pan to saute. I use cooking spray and put them on low temp and let them cook slowly. 

While they were cooking I put the lettuce on my plate and cut the tomatoes in half, shredded some carrots and cut up some sour pickles. 

When the mushrooms and onions were finished, I turned the heat up to medium and added *Red Wine Vinegar. I have also used Balsamic Vinegar, but preferred the Red Wine. I let the vinegar deglaze the pan and then put the hot mix onto the lettuce, immediately, to soften the lettuce a bit. 

Add the rest of the veggies and the cooked burger to the top. Top with shredded cheese. 

I didn't use any dressing. Between the caramelized mushrooms and onions, softened lettuce, pickles and melted cheese, I didn't feel like I needed it at all, but I think it would also be great with a little Ranch dressing! You decide! 

Serves 1
8*WW Points+

*Points value depends on beef and cheese, this is what my value was with a burger patty of 80/20 ground beef and the shredded cheese. You could definitely lower the points by getting less fat ground beef, but I bought a new kind of burger and I didn't look at the fat content. Everything else in this salad is 0 points! It is so filling, more filling than having a burger on a bun! 

Try it and let me know what you think!! 

Have a great Thursday!
