I am busy getting ready for a consignment sale for my MOPS group, so I thought I would just post this great salad recipe I made on Sunday. Even my kids loved this salad. I made a huge amount and we ate every bit except for a few pieces of bread.
It is THE DELUXE CHEESEBURGER SALAD from Pampered Chef. My kids said it taste just like a McDonald's Hamburger. This is my new favorite salad. Yummy!!!
4 Sesame seed hamburger bun tops
1 small red onion, divided
2 plum tomatoes
3/4 lb 95% lean ground beef (I used ground turkey)
1/2 cup finely diced dill pickles (I used Clausen's)
3/4 cup ketchup
1 Tbsp yellow mustard
8 Cups thinly sliced Romaine lettuce
1 Cup (4 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Slice bun tops into 1/4 strip (if bun tops are very thick, slice bottoms off horizontally before slicing into strips.) Arrange in a single layer on pan. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly toasted. Remove to cool.
2. Slice half of the onion crosswise into thin rings. Remove and discard stems from tomatoes; cut tomatoes into quarters lengthwise and slice crosswise. Set onions and tomatoes aside.
3. Cook ground beef over medium high heat 5-7 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking beef into crumbles. Dice remaining onion. In a bowl combine chopped onion, pickles, ketchup, and mustard. Add cooked ground beef, mix well.
4. To serve, arrange lettuce on large sering platter. Spoon beef mixture over lettuce. Top with cheese , tomatoes and sliced onion. Arrange hamburger bun croutons around edge of platter. Serve immediately.
