I've actually made these twice, once indoors on a grill pan on top of the stove because a thunderstorm rolled through at dinner time, and once on the outdoor grill. I used the variation on the dressing, which was using 1 tablespoon each of ketchup and mustard along with the ranch. So good! Filling, but not heavy. Next time, I'd melted the cheese on the burger and add some chopped crispy bacon. You can never go wrong with bacon!

This is a perfect main-dish salad. I'm honestly not that big of a salad person. I generally like heartier salads made of grains or pasta (what can I say, I love carbs!). However, adding a burger and all the fixins to chopped lettuce?! Game changing! The only thing I did differently was use bbq sauce rather than ketchup in the dressing. I will definitely make this salad again!
