For the special sauce:

  • ¼ cup vegan mayo
  • 3 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tbsp distilled white vinegar

For the salad:

  • 2 vegan burger patties
  • 1 head romaine lettuce washed and chopped
  • 4 small pickles diced
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes halved
  • ¼ red onion small diced
  • ¼ cup vegan cheddar
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds


  • To make the special sauce, whisk together all of the ingredients and chill until you're ready to serve.
  • Sear the vegan burgers in a cast iron skillet over medium high heat until slightly charred, approximately 3 minutes per side. (Follow package directions to ensure the patties are properly cooked)
  • To assemble the salads, start by dividing the romaine into 2 large bowls. Sprinkle on the cherry tomatoes, pickles and onions. Top with the burgers. Finish with a sprinkle of vegan cheddar and sesame seeds. Drizzle with the special sauce and serve.
