Bacon Cheeseburger Salad

One of my friends is doing a low-carb diet.  Although I'm not a fan of substituting out starchy products for cauliflower, I will look at recipes that are just different takes on things.

This happened to be one of them.  The original recipe was for one person, but again, if I have a pound of ground beef, I'm not using 6oz.  I'm using the whole pound.  So I upped the ingredients and servings of everything but the dressing, and added tomatoes and onions, although, D didn't have tomatoes on his salad, and I didn't have onions on mine.  I wasn't really missing the roll, because I'm not a huge fan of sandwich bread (rolls, white bread, wheat bread), and usually the dogs get most of the roll anyway.

It helped that Center Cut Bacon and 93/7 Ground Beef were on mark down, as were salad greens.

So the salad was really good.  The dressing was simple yet totally went with it.  I would have again.
