  • 1 tsp. coconut or avocado oil

  • 6 cups dark (leafy greens)

  • 1 ½ cups cherry tomatoes (sliced)

  • ½ cup pickles

  • 2 tbsp. ketchup

  • 1 tsp. coconut amino

  • 1 tbsp. dill pickle relish

  • 2 tsp. dried minced onion

  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes

  • 1 pinch salt


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together meat, garlic powder, and salt. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat, then add mixture to brown, crumbling along the way. You can cook over an outside grill in a cast iron for a backyard burger flavor if you want.

  2. Prepare lettuce, grapes, pickles, onion and bacon. Set aside. Make quick guacamole mixing avocado, lemon juice and ½ teaspoon salt (you can add in a jalapeno if you want). Roast onion in the oven at 375°F for 10-15 minutes.

  3. Make the special sauce. Whisk everything together.

  4. Assemble: start with greens in a bowl and layer meat mixture, tomatoes, pickles, red onion, bacon, and quick quick guacamole. Drizzle with sauce and serve. If you don't like the special sauce, use mustard for a sauce.
