Burger on a Salad

In need of a quick and light dinner during the week? I always have some type of ground meat in my freezer (beef, chicken, turkey), so turning them into grilled burgers and serving it over a salad is one of my go-to quick weeknight dinners! I have included a couple variations, but most of the time I just throw together whatever fresh vegetables I have in house into the salad! It is also a great way to mix up a leftover burger for lunch the next day.
