Cheeseburger Salad in a Jar

So we love salads, and we love cheeseburgers. So when I saw this from Skinnytaste, I knew I had to try it! We have made this in Salad format, but never in a jar. So for this week, with low fat beef (96/4), and lots of veggies, this tops the calories at 337 calories!

TOTAL TIME: 20 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

FOR THE SALAD:

  • 1 pound 96/4% lean ground beef
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 4 dill pickle spears, chopped
  • 1/2 small red onion, sliced into rings
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese

FOR THE DRESSING:

  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dill pickle juice
  • 4 teaspoons ketchup
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a large bowl, combine beef, salt and pepper. With wet hand, gently form into 4 equal patties. Set aside.
  2. In another large bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients. Set aside.
  3. Cook hamburger patties on a grill to medium doneness, around 4-5 minutes per side. After flipping the patties, add the onion rings to the grill. Cook onion for the remaining 4-5 minutes, flipping halfway through. Allow patties to rest for 5-10 minutes then cut each patty into 16 bite-size pieces.
  4. Add the lettuce, pickles, onion, avocado and tomato to the bowl. Divide the salad among 4 plates, top each with grilled onions, cheese, and 1 chopped patty. Drizzle with ¼ of the dressing.
