I was craving cheeseburgers, but I'm on a diet and trying to eat more salad. This is the great idea I came up with!
Make a medium-size salad with different types of lettuce and veggies. Use whichever kind you like! Chop the veggies into fairly small pieces (not the lettuce). Add in oil and vinegar dressing, and salt and pepper. Mix well together.
Grate 1/2 Cup to 1 Cup cheddar cheese (I also mix in jalapeno jack cheese).
Dice about 1/3 Cup of onion and sautee it in a pan with Pam or a small amount of oil. When they look fairly cooked, move them over to the side of the pan. Add more Pam. Take a good helping of hamburger (whatever amount you would use to make a burger) and add it to the pan. Chop it with your spatula in the pan until it makes small pieces. Brown it thoroughly and then mix it with the onions.
Add the cheese and burger mix into the salad and stir it all together. Delicious!
