Tips

You may need to drain the ground beef before adding it to the salad depending on the fat content and your personal preference.

Add a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds just before serving for a surprisingly pleasant nutty flavor reminiscent of a toasted sesame seed bun.

If you have leftovers, store the salad and veggies separately from the meat and the dressing. Then you warm the beef and toss the salad all together just before you're ready to eat.
