This burger salad recipe is a new favorite of ours! It’s a fibrous twist on a summer classic.

It’s great if you’re trying to limit bread or processes starches because it uses potatoes (in the form of fries – that you’re going to make) for the carbs.

This whole thing whips together in just 35 minutes!


This recipe has three main parts:

  1. Fries
  2. Salad
  3. Dressing


The homemade French fries consist of:

  • Potatoes
  • Coconut Oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Nutritional Yeast (optional, but adds GREAT flavor!)


  • Lettuce
  • Ground Beef (seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder)
  • Any burger toppings you’d like! This recipe calls for tomatoes, bacon, red onion, and avocado (or guacamole).


  • Mayo
  • Ketchup
  • Mustard
  • Pickles
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder

How To

The fries take the longest to cook, so start with those.

Once the fries are in the oven I like to make the burger meat so that it has some time to cool before I put it on the lettuce.

While the burger meat is cooking I put together the salad and make the dressing.

Once everything is done, put it all together and enjoy!

Flavor Boost

Anything you’d put on a burger can be added to this salad! Some ideas are:

  • jalapeños
  • banana peppers
  • pickles
  • egg (over easy or hard boiled)
  • BBQ sauce
  • toasted corn
  • black beans

Now let’s cut to the reason why you’re here, the recipe!

If you like this recipe then you’ll LOVE my other dinner recipes like Egg Roll in a Bowl or Chili Mac n Cheese.

Finish off this dinner with some of my favorite desserts, Green Hulk Cookies or Paleo Avocado Brownies.

I hope you LOVE this recipe as much as my family and I do! And have fun with it! Try sweet potatoes instead of russet, use hot relish instead of pickles. And if you can do dairy, throw some cheese on top!
