I have made this several times. So very tasty! Right now I have the seasoned hamburger (cooked) for this is individual serving packettes in the freezer and also shredded cheddar cheese in the freezer. One of these hot summer days I am going to pull some meat and cheese packettes out of the freezer, get some lettuce and tomatoes from the garden, mix up some dressing and slice up a dill pickle. Mmmm…..Thank you, Julia for a fun, tasty meal!!!
Enjoyed this salad for two meals this past week – the only change we introduced was to substitute Impossible Burger.
I’ve made this salad a few times. It never fails to satisfy that burger craving. So delish.
