This burger can be made up to a day ahead. Shape the patty, wrap it, and store it in the fridge until you’re ready to start cooking. The vegetables are at their freshest and most crunchy right after you prep them, so make the salad when you’re ready to eat. A double batch of this burger and salad makes an outstanding meal for two, or you can keep an extra serving refrigerated for up to 1 day to enjoy as another meal.
