H Is for Hamburger Salad


    What makes a hamburger great? I promise it's not the bun. It's the meat and all your favorite toppings. I love this salad. You can switch it up to have your own favorite toppings. You can grill your meat just the way you like it, then crumble it onto your salad. If you're primal, you can even add some high-quality, grass-fed cheese. I like ketchup and mayonnaise on mine, so I'm giving you a Thousand-Island-type dressing, but feel free to choose your own.

(Serves 4)
 
Ingredients:
4 cups Romaine lettuce
1 lb. ground beef or turkey, cooked and crumbled
4 slices of bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces and cooked
2 Roma tomatoes
1 small onion, diced (use your favorite onion; can be raw or sautéed; I like Vidalia, sautéed)
6 Tbs. organic ketchup

2 Tbs. organic, corn-syrup-free pickle relish
1 tsp. dried dill

Directions:
1. Top bed of lettuce with ground meat, bacon, tomato, and onion.

2. Mix ketchup, mayonnaise, relish, and dill in a small bowl. Top salad.
