I was planning to grill burgers, and then it dawned on me: How about a Big Mac salad? The original recipe doesn't call for a tomato, but it's awesome here. —Pam Jefferies, Cantrall, Illinois

"Great taste! I used romaine lettuce, served the dressing on the side, and skipped the croutons and served it in pita bread. Will definitely make this again. Makes a great lunch! Make ahead keeping the burger separate and microwave it before adding it to the salad."

"This was a very good salad and my husband liked it as well. Bonus: I had tossed the entire recipe in the dressing but there was only 2 of us - it makes generous single servings for 4 but we still had quite a bit left. Not wanting it to go to waste, I fridged it all in a glass container - aside from being a smidge soft and the croutons being soggy of course, it was actually very tasty for a left-over already-dressed salad!! So don't throw away leftovers!!!!!"
