Gourmet Burger with Tomato, Cucumber and Beetroot Salad

Succulent beef burger with tangy tomato and tasty cucumber in a soft bread bun.

Serves: 4 people

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 21 minutes


2 x 280g Packs Angus Gourmet Burgers

1 x Cucumber

4 x Tomatoes

400g Beetroot

Juice of a Fresh Lime

4 tbsp Olive Oil

1 x Green Chilli

1 x Red Chilli

1 x Small Clove Garlic, crushed

80g Blue Stilton

4 x Seeded Burger Buns

Salt and Black Pepper


Grill the burgers under a medium heat for around 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes (ensure the burgers are cooked through and that the juices run clear).

Whilst the burgers are cooking prepare the salad.

Halve the cucumber and, using a peeler, slice one half into thin ribbons.

Place these into a large sieve, sprinkle with a little salt and sit over a bowl to remove some of the water.

Chop the other half along with the tomatoes and beetroot.

Place in a serving bowl.

To prepare the dressing, mix together the lime juice, oil and crushed garlic.

Finely chop the green chilli, add to the dressing and season to taste.

Pour dressing over the salad and lightly toss.

When the burgers are cooked, top each with some crumbled blue stilton and some slices of red chilli.

Grill until just melted.

Toast the burger buns

Add a few cucumber ribbons to each roll base, add a burger and top with a lid.

Serve immediately with the salad on the side.
