Cheeseburger Salad


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef sirloin or chuck

  • 3 tablespoons onion, grated

  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • Natural cooking spray

  • 6 slices thickly-cut cheddar cheese from the deli, quartered into 24 small square slices

  • 6 cups chopped lettuce, such as romaine or iceberg

  • 1 cup tomatoes, chopped

  • 1 small red onion, chopped

  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard

  • 2 tablespoons ketchup

  • 1 round tablespoon relish

  • 2 tablespoons wine vinegar

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • Pickle chips, for garnish


Combine the beef with the onion, parsley, garlic and Worcestershire sauce; form 8-12 small patties.

Heat a griddle over medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray and grill the burgers for a couple of minutes on each side. Top the burgers with two squares of cheese per patty; melt under a foil tent in the last minute or so. Remove from the heat.

Combine the lettuce, tomatoes and red onion on a platter; arrange the burgers over top.

Whisk up the mustard, ketchup, relish, vinegar and oil. Pour the dressing over the salad, garnish with pickle chips and serve.
