Big Mac Salad – Keto and Low Carb

Sharing is caring!

You deserve a break when you’re on the keto diet or a low carb diet. Something like two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed…. wait, no bun.  It’s keto.  So let’s make a salad! This Big Mac Salad is low carb and keto friendly.

How do you make a Big Mac Salad

We pulled our ingredients together to try and match the taste of the secret sauce. That seems to be what makes the Big Mac the Big Mac. The only pre-cooked ingredient is the hamburgers. We cooked 3 on the stove and broke them into bite sized pieces.

Now I *think* secret sauce is basically thousand island dressing, so you could use that if it’s a low carb / no sugar variety. I combined mayo, tomatoes and dill relish and it’s pretty close. If you have ideas on how to make it taste more like the sauce, go for it.

mixing big mac salad

Wow. Slow it down, girl :D

You literally mix it all together. It couldn’t be easier. Well it could be if you have someone else who can make it for you… or someone who can mix it while keeping it all in the bowl. Wha??? You’ll want to taste test. It’s that good.

So yummy! And so easy. I think it might be our new favorite. If you don’t keep chopped slaw on hand, any lettuce would do. I like the slaw for a little more texture. 

You could go lower carb to make it more keto friendly by using a lower carb green. Make sure you use our nutritional info as a guide and use your own ingredients if you’re serious about your macros.

Serve it up! Because of the “no bun” deal, I added some sesame seeds to make me feel more McD’s. They add some extra flavor too.

Kid Friendly Salad

This salad will not only wow your non-keto friends, but your kids will love it too. They will barely know it’s salad! You can change ingredients to suit their tastes too – if Big Macs aren’t their things, make it more of a cheeseburger salad!

I used to work for "The Golden Arches". The "secret sauce" is indeed Thousand Island Dressing. We had to order both Mac Sauce and TI Dressing each week.If we ran out of one, we simply substitued the other for dressing/sauce.
