Deconstructed Veggie Burger Salad Recipe. Clementinebean.wordpress.com

Working on a college campus, there are many different places to grab lunch right outside my office. The challenge is finding something that tastes good but that is healthy at the same time. I would sometimes order a veggie burger from the burger place on campus and then one day I saw someone else order their burger wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun. I thought that would be good to get a veggie burger the same way but it was absolutely falling apart when I tried to pick it up to eat it. I ended up just cutting everything into smaller pieces and ate it with a fork.

Then a light bulb went off. I could make this into a salad, from home, and save money on it. So I ventured to Costco to pick up some of their pre-made veggie burger patties (they come in the refrigerated aisle) and whipped up a Deconstructed Veggie Burger Salad at home. Here’s how I made it.Deconstructed Veggie Burger Salad Recipe. Clementinebean.wordpress.comDeconstructed Veggie Burger Salad Recipe.

I eat hot sauce on my burger, so why not throw a little Tapatio on the salad right?Deconstructed Veggie Burger Salad Recipe. Clementinebean.wordpress.com

 

You could use any dressing you like but I think a Honey Mustard or Thousand Island would lend to the “burger” themed salad. I only had some homemade Italian dressing at home so I mixed a little Dijon mustard into it and created a mustard vinaigrette and it worked really well.

2-4 slices of red onion
1 Roma tomato cut into pieces
1 veggie burger patties, heated, cut into pieces

Mix all the ingredients together. Enjoy!
