Hamburger No Bun Salad


Need a burger fix?! If you find yourself craving a burger but don't want to do the bun then why not try the no bun burger salad?! There are paleo wraps out now and options to make a mushroom bun but another way to get the same flavor without the fuss of a bun is to simply turn your hamburger into a salad.

Dill pickles, cherry tomatoes, lettuce, and grass-fed ground beef give you all the classic flavors of a hamburger in this vegetable-heaven. Then all you need to do is add a dressing that combines ketchup, organic mayonnaise and an extra hint of pickle and vinegar for bite. You could pair this with a side of sweet potato fries or butternut fries for a classic summer taste that is completely healthy! Or like my photo above for a crunch I simply added some plantain chips for a kick and crunch.
