This healthy twist on a family favourite has all the great flavours of a burger but without all the fat. This recipe is a mouthwatering leftovers idea from our mustard crusted roast topside with herby Yorkshires dish. The leftover meat needs to be thoroughly reheated until piping hot and should never be reheated more than once.

Wash and dry the lettuce and arrange it on a serving plate. Scatter the sliced pickles on top.

Make the dressing and mix the vinegar and mustard with a little salt in a small bowl.

Add the tomatoes and beef to the salad. Drizzle with the dressing and serve immediately.
