This will be the star of every BBQ you go to this summer! It's everything you love about a classic cheeseburger put into a creamy vegan pasta salad.
In a cast iron pan over medium-high heat, add vegetable oil, veggie ground round, 1 cup of diced white onion, garlic powder, sea salt and ground black pepper. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring every so often until the ground round is golden and the onion is soft. Set aside.
In a large bowl add cherry tomatoes, vegan cheddar cheese, 1 cup diced garlic dill pickles, 1/4 cup chives, the cooked vegan ground round mixture and the cooked pasta. Pour 1 cup of dressing over top and toss to combine. Set aside to cool at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before topping with lettuce.
