    Burger Salad with Mustard Dressing

    Here’s my new routine:

    1. Make extra burgers at our weekend BBQ.  

    2. The following day, chop up a big head of fresh lettuce (have I mentioned I love our CSA?) and place it in a dish.

    3. Place the burger on top, along with all of our FAVORITE burger toppings and more leftovers.

    4. Mix up my mustard dressing and boom- awesome lunch.

    For this week’s Healthy Food Friday with American Express, let’s break down the BURGER SALAD, because burgers + salad + all the topping = perfection.

    Classic Burger Seasoning

    Burger night has been taking place often around here. It’s an easy go-to meal for the summer, for sure! I like getting creative with toppings and different bun alternatives. Lettuce leaves as a bun, sweet potato buns, or grilled portobello mushroom caps (along with the obvious bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, smashed avocado toppings). Deeee-lish.

    I used to use a hamburger seasoning that I loved. When we finally moved and bought our grill, I checked out that old handy seasoning only to find the ingredients weren’t working for me anymore. Instead of listing ingredients, the end of the list said ‘and other natural flavor.’ I’d rather know exactly what’s in the spice mix I’m eating, personally.

    Classic Burger Seasoning

    Just the right amount of flavor!
