This salad has everything I love about a cheeseburger, sans the bun. Chopped romaine, tomatoes, avocado, pickles, shredded cheese topped with grilled burgers, red onions and drizzled with a seriously delicious dressing.
For the Salad:
1pound93% lean ground beef
Freshly ground black pepper(to taste)
4cupschopped romaine lettuce
4dill pickle spears(chopped)
1/2small red onion(sliced into rings)
4ounceavocado(cubed (from 1 small haas))
1/4cupreduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese
For the Dressing:
1teaspoondill pickle juice
4teaspoonsketchup(sugar free for Keto)
In a large bowl, combine beef, salt and pepper. With wet hand, gently form into 4 equal patties. Set aside.
In another large bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients. Set aside.
Cook hamburger patties on a grill to medium doneness, around 4-5 minutes per side. After flipping the patties, add the onion rings to the grill. Cook onion for the remaining 4-5 minutes, flipping halfway through. Allow patties to rest for 5-10 minutes then cut each patty into 16 bite-size pieces.
Add the lettuce, pickles, onion, avocado and tomato to the bowl. Divide the salad among 4 plates, top each with grilled onions, cheese, and 1 chopped patty. Drizzle with ¼ of the dressing.
