Burger in a bowl is a fun and healthier way to get the flavor of a cheeseburger but in a salad minus the bun.
Cook the ground beef until browned, drain if necessary. Put the skillet with the beef back on the stove and add the seasoning.
To a small bowl, add the ketchup, mayonnaise, vinegar and olive oil, pepper and a pinch of cayenne. Mix well.
Drizzle a some of the dressing around the inside of the salad bowl. This will help coat the salad with the sauce.
Add the lettuce, pickles, onions, grape tomatoes, bacon and ground beef to the bowl and give it a good toss. Drizzle more dressing on top of the salad and serve immediately.
Put each ingredient into separate containers. For instance, put the greens in one container, the onions and beef in another container (or separate depending on how you want to do things), pickles in another container and so on.
You should keep the lettuce away from the other ingredients that way the salad will stay crisp. Add the special sauce to an air tight container. Put the salad together as soon as you're ready to serve it.
