New Recipe: Grass Fed Burger Salad

This is a new favourite here at The Natural Nutritionist. So simple and the perfect way to warm up a salad for the cooler weather. You can of course make your patties from scratch, but I often choose to save time and support my local butcher by purchasing their pre-made grass-fed option. Enjoy. 

Ingredients (Serves 1)


  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 yellow capsicum
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 handful coriander
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • The juice of 1 lime

Cashew Sour Cream:

  • 1 cup cashews, soaked in boiled water for 10 minutes and drained
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • The juice of one lemon
  • Sea salt, to taste


  • 1 grass-fed beef pattie
  • 1 egg, free range
  • 1 tablespoon cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil
  • 2 large iceberg lettuce leaves, chopped


  1. To make the salsa: roughly chop tomatoes, capsicum and avocado and combine in a small bowl with finely chopped coriander, olive oil and lime juice. Combine well. Cook patties and eggs in coconut oil.
  2. To make the cashew sour cream: combine all ingredients in a food processor or high-speed blender and process until smooth.
  3. Cook patties and eggs in coconut oil.
  4. In a bowl add lettuce leaves, 1 cup salsa and a generous pour of cashew sour cream. Top with patties and egg and serve. Store leftover salsa and cashew sour cream in the fridge for tomorrow.
