Bacon Cheeseburger Salad with Dill Pickle Dressing

Quick to make, this Bacon Cheeseburger Salad with Dill Pickle Dressing is a low-carb option for lunch or dinner!

It's crazy to think about how much this taste like a cheeseburger! You get all the same flavors without the carbs and messiness of eating a real cheeseburger. Adorn the salad with whatever toppings you'd eat on a burger. Tomatoes, jalapenos, mushrooms...

This salad is perfect for lunch or dinner with the family. If you're making this for kiddos, croutons made out of hamburger buns would be fun and might entice them to eat a salad. 

When dressing the salad, hold a little bit of dressing back to avoid overdressing.
