Reviews for Bacon Cheeseburger Salad
"What a unique idea for dinner! I really liked this and unlike another reviewer; I did not find it too much work at all."
"It was easy and delicious. A nice change from a burger. I didn't find it to be anymore work than taco salad, maybe a bit less work. I added a dollop of miricle whip on top and I think it would also be great with a bit of ranch dressing!!!"
"I made this dish and honestly it was just a lot of work. It was good, and it was neat to try but my family would have been just as satisfied with Taco Salad which I could closely compare this dish too and with less work."
"Yummy Yummy Yummy! Next time I make it I'm going to use tomato sauce in stead of ketchup. I'm not a big fan of the ultra sweet taste of ketchup."
