When my husband and I first started dating, we would meet up at our favorite local burger joint every Sunday evening. You see every Sunday night during the summer was half price burger night outside on the deck of the restaurant.

We were both young and poor and this was a fun, inexpensive date for us (our bill never went over $10!). We’d soak up the summertime sun, eat our burgers and talk about whatever two people young in love talk about.

1 ½ lbs ground beef

1-2 heads of romaine lettuce, torn into pieces

1 slice of bacon per serving, cooked and crumbled (if you are serving 4, you’d need 4 bacon slices)

1 medium red onion, sliced thin

1 avocado, diced

1 pint of cherry tomatoes or 3 roma tomatoes, diced

1/2 dill pickle spear per serving, diced (if you are serving 4, you’d need 4 dill pickle halves), diced

1 ½ T yellow mustard

1 ½ T dijon mustard or spicy mustard

Optional ingredients: grated cheddar cheese if you tolerate dairy


In a skillet over medium high heat, brown your ground beef. If there is a lot of excess fat, drain most of it off. Remove the skillet from the heat and add in the BBQ sauce and mustards. Mix well, coating all the beef. Set aside while you prepare the rest of the salad.
