What says summer better than a juicy burger?! The theme of this week’s Summer Meal Menus is salads, so I thought I would share a salad perfect for the season here too.
Lately, I’ve been a little lazy with my meal prep. And, I’m totally okay with it. It’s summer! We are busy! But, I have a meal prep tip for you… prep your protein. You’ve heard me talk about my protein prep tip before, but basically what I do is cook protein like ground beef, chicken and hard boiled eggs and store them so that I can easily whip up meals.
This is one that tastes amazing fresh or works well with the protein prep. It’s a lighter, low carb option, so be sure to include a fun carbohydrate side – sweet potatoes fries, maybe some chips?! #Balance
1 lb. lean ground beef or ground turkey
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
6 cups roughly chopped romaine lettuce
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce or coconut aminos
Cook ground meet in a large frying pan with olive oil over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper. Break up finely and sauce until cooked through, about 7-9 minutes
While the meat is cooking, whisk together the vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl
Place salad greens and cooked beef in a large bowl. Toss with tomatoes and cheese. Drizzle with vinaigrette and toss.
Divide evenly between 4 bowls or plates
