  • 8 cup romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1.5 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese (optional)

For the caesar dressing:

  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 lemon, juice of
  • 1 tsp anchovy paste
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


  1. Start by chopping your romaine and set aside. 

  2. Make caesar dressing. Place all of the ingredients except the olive oil in a food processor and blend until everything is combined. While the food processor is still running, stream in olive oil until smooth and creamy. Pour 1/2 cup dressing over romaine and toss to coat. Set aside. You will have leftover caesar dressing. 

  3. Place ground turkey in a large mixing bowl and add garlic powder and smoked paprika. Mix to combine with your hands. Then, form ground turkey into six evenly sized patties. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. 

  4. In a large skillet over medium heat, add avocado oil. Once hot, place burgers in pan and cook 6-8 minutes each side until turkey is well done. 

  5. Once burgers are done, plate with a base of romaine, the burger on top, caesar dressing and parmesan cheese as an optional topping.
