The salad looks delicious but could you tell me how you get the thin edges on the burger. It kind of looks like the butter burgers at Culvers. Thanks.

Thanks JoAnn L, I just shape the ground beef into a ball and flatten it with my hand to the desired thickness trying to leave it a little thicker in the center.

This salad sounds and looks really good. Have you made it without the chicken? If so, did you miss the chicken? Thanks in advance.

OK Maverick2272...Burger is on it's way.

Eriu, I have left out the chicken and did not miss it at all. The bacon really adds the flavor in this salad. I only added the chicken because my son asked for me to add some. I make another pasta salad that is similar, only without the Ranch dressing that he likes a lot.
