Ingredients

    2 cups butter lettuce
    4 oz lean ground beef
    Garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste
    1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    1 chopped green onion
    2 slices of raw onion
    5 cherry tomatoes
    1/4 cup chopped dill pickle chips
    1.5 tbsp Wishbone Thousand Island dressing

Tips

Store extra cooked burger balls in the fridge. Just heat them up with some fresh cheese before adding to salads. To cut back on calories, try reducing the amount of salad dressing used.


Directions

Burger Balls:
Mix raw ground beef with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Using clean hands, roll the meat into "meatballs" that are about 1/4 inch thick. Try to make them small bite-size. If they are too large, they won't cook right.

In a non-stick saucepan on medium heat, cook the burger balls in batches. Carefully brown all sides of the burger balls to give the char-grilled outside flavor. Make sure the inside is cooked thoroughly. Set cooked burger balls to the side on a clean plate.

Salad Prep:
Add chopped lettuce, chopped onion, sliced tomato, chopped pickles, and salad dressing to a large bowl. Mix well.

On a small plate, place 4 oz of cooked burger balls and sprinkle 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese on top of the meat. Microwave until cheese is melted (~1 min on High).

Top your salad with the warm cheeseburger balls. Sprinkle chopped green onion on top.

Enjoy!

Serving Size: Makes one salad entree
