We LOVE In-N-Out Burger (super famous here on the West Coast), so we've made a salad inspired by one of its popular items... YUM!
Directions: Place lettuce in a large bowl and top with chopped tomato and pickle. Set aside.
Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to high heat on the stove. Add onion and cook until slightly browned and softened, about 3 minutes. Transfer to the large bowl and set aside.
Prepare Boca patty according to package instructions (either in the microwave or in a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray). Once just cool enough to handle, chop into bite-sized pieces and transfer to a small bowl. Add mustard and toss to coat. Transfer the mustard-y burger bites to the salad bowl. Evenly top salad with cheese and dressing. Now EAT!

HG Alternative! Sometimes we toss 1/4 cup chopped avocado onto this dish. SO GOOD! Do that and your salad will have 320 calories, 7.5g fat, and 10.5g fiber. Nice...
CHEW ON THIS: Today, July 29th, is Cheese Sacrifice Purchase Day. (Obscure, yes, but it only comes once a year, people!) Instead of surrendering dairy products to mousetraps (gross!), buy your favorite guilt-free cheese and EAT IT! Laughing Cow Light, prepare to be purchased and sacrificed... to our taste buds.
