This weeks recipe is the Big Mac Salad, this is a low carb keto friendly recipe that captures the flavors of the famous Big Mac sandwich which is loved world wide. This part of our 4 week summer salads series, and this requires minimal cooking. We absolutely loved this recipe and we are sure your family will as well.
I remember growing up as a child in Washington D.C. and there was a contest where if you could say all of the ingredients of the Big MAC you could win a free one, at least that’s what the story was. So I practiced, and practiced and to this day I can still remember all of the ingredients:
Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun…
Wow that brings back memory’s. My daughter Izzy who is 10, loves, loves, loves the Big Mac and it’s her go to sandwich at McDonald’s.
This recipes combined with the sauce truly does capture of the flavor of the Big Mac. We ended up making a bit of extra sauce for ours. I would imagine that this probably would taste better as it sat. However, if you were serving this at a gathering you might want to wait until just before serving to combine your cooked ground beef. It’s also important to drain your ground beef throughly before combine with your salad. We hope you and your family enjoy this easy to make salad.
