Celebrate the season with a tasty twist on an American classic! Serve up an easy cheeseburger salad, featuring RO*TEL.
We love American classics in my house! Give us a good BBQ anytime and we’ll invite all the neighbors! I’m always collecting simple potluck dish ideas to serve to a crowd.
This one is so easy to make, and has all the flavors of a summer favorite– cheeseburgers!
I was inspired by peeking into my pantry and seeing a few cans of RO*TEL that we keep around for all sorts of summer recipes… tacos, dips, grilling out, etc. I immediately thought of adding a little bit of boldness to a cookout classic.
I like the idea of layering cheeseburger ingredients on top of a salad, to lighten things up for summer. You can add a variety of toppings depending on what everyone likes on their burgers.
Plus, it can be doubled as a main dish or served as a side. Love that!
After you brown up the ground beef, the rest of the recipe takes minutes. Just layer on the toppings, and add the dressing.
You could even cook up the ground beef a day or two before the party, and add the ingredients in a bowl right before serving. So easy!
The dressing is a simple 1:1 mix of ketch-up and mayo, and goes perfectly with the cheeseburger toppings. Tastes just like summer!
A filling side dish perfect for summer parties! I love having an easy recipe in my back pocket for impromptu cookouts and summer potlucks.
We have so many events during the summer months, and while I love to get together with friends, it can be a lot to plan! I always appreciate having a few recipes that come together in minutes and seem just right for summer.
Gather around some yummy dishes & enjoy the season.
