  • 8 oz bacon

  • 9 oz romaine, chopped
  • 4 1/4 oz (119g) pickle slices, roughly chopped
  • 3/4 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese


Optional Topping


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line baking sheet with foil and baking rack. Lay bacon strips on baking rack in even layer.
  2. Bake bacon in oven until crispy, about 15-20 minutes depending on thickness of bacon. (Alternatively, bacon can be cooked on stovetop over medium heat and drained of excess grease on paper towel-lined plate).
  3. Meanwhile, brown ground beef on stovetop over medium heat. Once cooked, remove from heat, add salt, and mix thoroughly. Do not drain liquid from ground beef.
  4. Once bacon has cooked, allow to cool slightly before crumbling.
  5. To a large mixing bowl, add ground beef, crumbled bacon, romaine, shredded cheddar, and pickles.
  6. In a high-speed blender or food processor, blend dressing ingredients until smooth.
  7. Pour dressing over salad and mix until well-incorporated.
  8. Transfer salad to refrigerator to chill for 1 hour.
  9. Optional: Drizzle yellow mustard and sprinkle chopped green onions over top of salad.
  10. Serve chilled and enjoy!
