Add to it low calories, zucchini chips and a bright and crunchy coleslaw and your meal is complete. So, here’s what you’ll need. For the burger bowl, lean ground beef or turkey. One sweet yellow onion that you’ll slice and caramelize one ripe tomato, some green leaf lettuce, and for the dressing.

Today on mixing two together 1000 Island and bacon ranch dressings. Season your burger meat with salt and pepper then form into three and a half ounce patties. Cut the onion into thin slices and get your skillet nice and hot. Add some water to your pan and cook the onions until they’re soft and caramelized through a beautiful golden-brown caramelization brings out the natural sweetness of the onion. When done set them aside.

And here’s how I did it with just three ingredients. Zero Calorie olive oil or cooking spray one zucchini, slice thin and some salt. Lay the slices on a paper towel lined sheet pan. Cover the slices with another towel and press down to remove any moisture. Then line two sheet pans with parchment paper and lay the slices out not overcrowding. Spray the oil over the slices.
