Sometimes salads just need an upgrade so let me introduce you to this incredible blue cheese burger salad!

This blue cheese burger salad will forever transform the way you eat salads!

Getting bored with the same old, same old salad every day for lunch? If that’s the case, we have got the solution for you! Meet the blue cheeseburger salad. It’s a mesh between our wedge salad and a blue cheese-smothered burger, minus the bun of course. The end result is the best salad you’ve ever had!

Protein is key to taking this salad from a side dish to the main course.

Wedge salads are my absolute favorite salad to order at restaurants and make at home. But they’re usually just a side salad. By adding a burger patty, you transform the wedge salad into the perfect meal and it’s amazing.

My Hip teammate, Erica, came up with this brilliant idea and I have to thank her for it. This idea uses Costco hamburger patties (which I always have in the freezer) and my love of wedge salads. So it’s a win-win recipe in my book!

Tips for making the best blue cheese burger salad:

  • Costco has really good frozen hamburger patties! I always have these on hand, but you can use any store-bought hamburger patty, make your own, or just use crumbled ground beef.
  • If blue cheese isn’t your thing, ranch would be amazing on this salad. You could do shredded cheddar cheese in place of blue cheese crumbles, too.
  • Feel free to make this salad your own using your favorite salad toppings!

Here’s what my Hip sidekick Erica had to say about this blue cheese burger salad:

“I love making this for dinner time! The salad is so filling and SO, SO GOOD! If you love wedge salad, you’re going to love this burger wedge. I love that you can just toss whatever you’d like on there – it’s so good with blue cheese or gorgonzola and I also like to switch up the dressing, too. Sometimes I use ranch and other times I’ll go with blue cheese!”
