Print Recipe

Did someone say Big Mac?! If you're anything like me, then you probably crave burgers...A LOT! The only problem is that you can't eat burgers every day and expect to feel good about it! Turns out that the next best thing to getting a fast food burger is to make this Big Mac Salad. Not only is it healthier than a burger, but it's really easy to whip up after a long day.

Even picky eaters are going to love this. My kids love burgers (obviously), and they aren't always the biggest fans of salads, but this one definitely won them over. The ground beef, pickles and homemade Big Mac sauce really make this recipe one to remember.

This salad is great for people who are on low carb diets, making it a meal everyone can enjoy. There's no bun, but it still tastes like a Big Mac, so there's no sacrificing on delicious flavor.
