Combine dressing ingredients in a bowl with a whisk. Season beef with salt & pepper. Brown beef until cooked through in skillet. Set aside.
Cooking bacon in skillet over medium heat until desired doneness. Chop into bite sized pieces once cooled. While beef and bacon are cooking, clean and chop veggies.
Once all ingredients are cooked, begin to layer salad. Use ¼ of the total ingredients for one serving. Layer in this order - romaine, burger, bacon, cheese, avocado, tomatoes, pickles. Drizzle with 1 TB (or more depending on your liking) of the dressing.
If you can, use ground beef crumbles rather than ground beef patties. Ground beef patties tend to dry out and are tougher than ground beef crumbles.
Use a slotted spoon to remove ground beef crumbles from the pan to cut down on the grease.
To make Whole30 burger sauce (similar to Big Mac thousand island dressing), omit honey and bbq sauce and add in 1 teaspoon pickle juice and 3 pickles along with 1 teaspoon paprika and ½ teaspoon salt. Blend with ½ cup mayo in a blender.
For low carb version, use Whole30/keto burger sauce, not Chick Fil A sauce recipe. Nutrition information reflects Chick Fil A sauce.
