Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Cheeseburger Salad

Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Cheeseburger Salad

Confession:  I’ve never eaten a Big Mac.  Nope, never.  And, I think I may go to the grave without ever trying one.  My sister-in-law claims it to be a significant miss… and when they came out with the mini Big Macs, I almost did it.

Now though, I think I’ve found the way to enjoy all the flavors of the Big Mac… without all the calories.  It looks a little something like this.

While this is my first cheeseburger salad, I am most certain that it will not be the last.  The 1000 island dressing (similar to the “special sauce”) adds just the right amount of tang to the salad.  The lettuce, tomato, and onion are reminiscent of the fresh toppings on everyone’s favorite burger.  I don’t enjoy dill pickles on my burgers, but if you do… you could certainly add them to the salad for the full flavor!

Enjoy!

Cheeseburger Salad

Serves 1

INGREDIENTS

1 Jenny Craig Classic Cheeseburger

3 cups romaine lettuce

1 cup red cabbage, shredded

7 grape tomatoes, halved

red onion slices

2 Tbsp. light Thousand Island dressing

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Separate the cheeseburger from the bun.  Wrap the bun in a paper towel and cook it for 30 seconds.  Place the cheeseburger on a small microwave safe plate, and cook for 1 minute, 40 seconds until done.  Toast the bun in your toaster until crunchy.

2.  Meanwhile, add lettuce and red cabbage to a large bowl, tossing to combine.  Top with onion and tomatoes.  Note:  Add dill pickle slices, if desired.

3.  Chop the burger and bun.  Add to the top of the salad.

4.  Place salad dressing in a snack sized ziploc bag, and snip a corner.  Drizzle dressing on the salad.

5.  Serve and enjoy!!

Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Grilled Veggie-Topped Cheeseburger

What a beautiful weekend!  I love a long weekend, sleeping in, spending time with friends… Memorial Day Weekend did not disappoint (or , as the kids are calling it.)

On Saturday night, I used my grill for the first time this season cooking up my favorite kabobs for friends, and I haven’t stopped using the grill since.  I’ve grilled FOUR times this week so far, with no sign of stopping anytime soon.

Here’s a sad story:  My condo HOA is going to be outlawing grills this month.  So, I’m getting as much time in with my grill before it finds a new home.  After that, I’m thinking I’ll need an electric grill that I can fire up out there – – something that’s safe and approved.

Today, I got a little creative, and honestly, I didn’t even expect this to be a recipe I would share.  It was SO SO good, that I had to share.

I just finished this burger maybe 10 minutes ago, and looking at this picture, I’m already hungry for it again!  Marinated onions grilled to perfection + charred red cabbage + cool red tomato = an incredibly flavorful burger.

Grilled Veggie-Topped Cheeseburger

Serves 1

INGREDIENTS

1 Jenny Craig Classic Cheeseburger

red cabbage, grilled

dried basil

salt

pepper

cooking spray

red onion, marinated and grilled

1 package Jenny Craig balsamic vinaigrette

INSTRUCTIONS

1.  In a quart-sized bag, add veggies and dressing.  Allow to marinate overnight.  I used an orange bell pepper and small red onion.  

2.  Slice your red cabbage into 6 wedges.  Spray lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle with basil, salt, and pepper.

3.  Skewer your veggies, and place them on grill. Skewering the cabbage will help to make sure that it doesn’t separate.  Cook the veggies until done.  The cabbage is tough and can stand for a little more time than the onions.  Recommend cooking the cabbage for 9 minutes on each side, charring optional and delicious.  Keep an eye on the other veggies, turning them and caring for them so as not to burn.

4.  Remove the cheese from your burger and set it aside.  Cook your burger in the microwave wrapped in a paper towel for 1 minute (inside the bun, per the instructions on the package).

5.  Place the burger on the grill for just a few minutes, flipping once and taking care as to not burn it.  Add the cheese for about 1-2 minutes until it melts.  Remove from the grill.

6.  Build your burger with a few pieces of grilled red cabbage on the bottom.  Top with your burger.  Add grilled onions and tomato slices.

7.  Prepare to enjoy this burger!  Note:  I always add sauce to my burgers.  Reduced fat ketchup, mustard, etc.  This burger needed NOTHING.  So much flavor in those veggies.

Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Zesty Slaw-Stuffed Chicken Burrito

I’m sure by now you’ve seen the recipe for the INCREDIBLE slaw I posted last week.  It literally ROCKS my world, and I’ve been eating on it all week.  I’ve been pairing it with everything!  And, so far I haven’t found anything that it is not delicious with – – tacos, sandwiches, burgers, wraps… it’s so good on everything!

That being said, don’t be too surprised that I’ve stuffed it into the Jenny Craig Chicken Burrito this week.  That staple dish is finally back on my menu, and I’m overwhelmed by how much flavor this slaw add to the mix.  You’re going to love it!

Note:  The Chicken Burrito has resurfaced in Jenny Craig freezers this month, and I’ve heard some folks complaining that it’s smaller than it was in the past.  Yes, it’s smaller… but you guys, I’d have to say, the quality is better!  The wrap is thicker, chewier, and can handle my manipulating it a little better.  I’m a happy camper as a result!

Zesty Slaw-Stuffed Chicken Burrito

Serves 1

INGREDIENTS

1 Jenny Craig Chicken Burrito

3/4 cup Simple Zesty Cabbage Slaw

other leftover veggies you have on hand

INSTRUCTIONS

1.  Cook your burrito per the package instructions.  Unroll the burrito, laying the tortilla flat.

2.  Add veggies.  I added 3 roasted asparagus I had leftover from earlier in the week.  Spinach would also be delicious.

3.  Add your slaw.   Note:  Add as much slaw as you can while still being able to roll it up.

4.  Re-roll the burrito, and slice diagonally.
