  • cutting board & knife
  • Grill
  • Measuring Cups & spoons
  • large bowl
  • salad spinner
  • Air Fryer *can also use an oven


  • 3 whole BUBBA Original Burgers grilled, and chopped
  • 8 ounces cheddar cubes
  • 6 cups green leaf lettuce washed, dried, chopped
  • 1 small red onion sliced
  • 2 Roma tomatoes chopped
  • 4 dill pickles chopped
  • 2 whole burger buns cubed
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter melted
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

Thousand Island Dressing

  • 1 cup mayonaisse
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons sweet relish
  • 2 tablespoons minced onion dry or fresh
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon sweet paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt



  • Combine all the dressing ingredients in a bowl, and cover; refrigerate until needed. You can also transfer the dressing to an airtight container or jar. This tastes best after the flavors have had a chance to meld-at least 8 hours.


  • Grill BUBBA burger patties for 5 minutes per side.
  • Add the chopped burger buns to a large bowl. Mix in the melted butter and garlic powder, and toss to coat.
  • In an oven, or air fryer, toast the croutons until golden-brown, and crisp; about 5-10 minutes turning once.
  • In a large bowl, add the lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, and grilled, chopped burger patties.
  • Top the salad with toasted croutons and homemade dressing. Enjoy!
