Cheeseburger Salad with Creamy Mustard Vinaigrette

Cheeseburger Salad with Creamy Mustard Vinaigrette

“Saladfy” means to take a sandwich or burger and remake it into a salad. Anyone ever heard of this before? No? Okay, then. Let me explain. Chicken Cobb Salad is basically a chicken club with eggs, isn’t it? Antipasto salad seems a lot like an Italian sub to me, how about you? So why not take a cheeseburger and make it a salad? Makes perfect sense, right? The best part about this salad is the pickles and the homemade dressing.

So, here’s how this goes:

  1. Prep your Bibb lettuce (or any crisp lettuce), thinly sliced white onions, tomatoes (sliced) and kosher dill hamburger pickles.
  2. Make the dressing.
  3. Grill or broil your patties and then add cheese, and cut patties into bite sized cubes.
  4. Put it all together

The things:

  • Grill, oven or stove top to make the patties.
  • A whisk. Or use the immersion blender (my preferred way) to make the dressing.
