50 burger recipe roundup for every preference - burger salad

Burger salads for the win!

Over the summers we deem Friday night our burger night and it’s my favorite!

I go for the buns sometimes, but I LOVE a good burger salad!

A lettuce salad base, extra other veggie toppings, special sauce, and a burger patty. Give me a ton of crispy potato bites or old bay potato wedges + kefir ranch dressing and I am in heaven. Heaven!

I cannot get enough of that combo and am gladly going to keep it going.

We’ve made tons of flavor variations over the past couple of months, and to keep the inspiration for myself going, along with inspiration for you, I’m rounding up so many tasty burgers!

There are burgers for meat lovers, and a whole lotta variety in there, along with meat-free veggie burger options.

Grab a recipe and get some burger (salads) in yo belly!

Pro tips when making these healthy burger recipes

Your ground meat of choice will make this a healthier version.

Choose lean ground meat like turkey or ground chicken or a lighter burger.

Or opt for extra lean ground beef for lean beef burgers.

Choose your bun and make it extra healthy by finding a bun with more fiber: whole-wheat buns are great, or make lettuce cups and have a veggie-forward perfect burger.
