This recipe is a lighter way to enjoy an American summer staple. You can try a version of the dressing with 1 tablespoon of yellow mustard and 1 tablespoon of ketchup. —Laurie Rogerson, Ellington, Connecticut

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat ranch salad dressing
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 4 cups shredded lettuce
  • 4 cups torn romaine
  • 1 medium cucumber, finely chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped dill pickles
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Crushed potato chips, optional


  1. In a small bowl, combine beef, salt and pepper, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-in.-thick patties.
  2. Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160°.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk salad dressing and ketchup. In a large bowl, toss lettuces with half the dressing mixture; divide among 4 plates. Top with burger, cucumber, tomato, pickles, onion and cheese. Serve with remaining dressing. Top with potato chips if desired.
