  • 1 pound 93% 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)
  • 4 ounce avocado (cubed (from 1 small haas))
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese


  • 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
  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.
