Have an excess of cooked burgers after hosting your BBQ party? Turn them into family-friendly weeknight dinners like this leftover cheeseburger salad drizzled with homemade hamburger dressing and topped with crumbled chips.

If you're like me, you load up your grill with food to last for days. Veggies, seafood, meats...I always feel like a waste if I'm not crowding my BBQ with all kinds of goodies, don't you?

It's a given to have cookout leftovers when the cookout season is in high gear, especially for holiday weekends like Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day.

Not only is it quick and easy to make, but absolutely delicious and light too. It's a perfect solution for lazy weekdays.

Cook once eat all week is such an easy solution for busy people. Who doesn't want to spend more time with family and friends instead of cooking every day, amirite?

In just a few minutes, you'll have a delightful lunch at home or on the go. I like to add crumbled bacon and chopped pickles to this cheeseburger salad, too, or add whatever you usually put on your burger. The more, the merrier.

If you want a little bit more protein and fat in this salad, add some leftover chicken pieces and top it with sliced avocado. Ta-da! You'll be amazed at how substantial this meal is.
