Veggie Burger Salad

Here’s an idea to change the way you look at salads – it’s nutritious and satisfying too.

* If preparing for someone who eats halal, check they are happy to eat balsamic vinegar. 

Serves: 1
Time to prepare: 15 mins
Time to cook: 15 mins
Dietary requirements: Halal, Vegan (with substitutions)


  • Two of your favourite veggie burgers
  • A handful of unsalted cashew nuts
  • Half an avocado
  • 1 small carrot
  • A handful of fresh basil leaves, roughly torn
  • A generous handful of mixed green salad leaves

For the dressing

  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp soya sauce
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp dried oregano


  • Dried chilli flakes


  1. To make the dressing, put the ingredients into a screw-top jar, shake well and then set aside in the fridge while you make the salad.
  2. Cook the burgers in your favourite way (oven-bake, grill, fry or barbecue!) and chop into bite-sized pieces. You can assemble the salad while they are still warm or wait until they have cooled.
  3. Chop the cashews roughly.
  4. Peel and chop the avocado half.
  5. Scrub or peel the carrot and grate it.
  6. Give the salad dressing another shake and toss all the salad ingredients together. Serve immediately.
