Who doesn’t like a Big Mac now and then. Actually I haven’t had a Big Mac in nearly 20 years but I have had a low carb Big Mac Salad many times. I learned about this concoction while on The Ideal Protein diet. It’s really quite tasty whether or not you are on a diet and especially if you like the taste combination of a Big Mac.
Low Carb Big Mac Salad Recipe
If you remember the Big Mac jingle from years ago it went like this: 2 all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame bun.
This recipe is similar in that except that it’s missing the bun and the cheese. You can add cheese if you want and it won’t increase the carb count. However I didn’t think it really needs this.
Two special ingredients that make this salad
First I use Montreal Steak seasoning when I brown the ground beef. This really give it that hamburger taste to me. You can get this in any grocery store. I often buy Aldi’s brand and it’s fine.
The second ingredient is Walden Farms Thousand Island dressing. It’s very sweet but it goes well with this salad and it has 0 calories and 0 carbs. I can find this in my grocery store but you can find it online as well.
I hope you enjoy this delicious low carb Big Mac salad. Do yourself a favor and brown a lot of meat so you can eat this for the next few days! Enjoy!
