Low Carb Cheeseburger Salad with Big Mac Sauce

Basically, a cheeseburger without the bun! A quick, easy, low carb cheeseburger salad made with a lightened up Big Mac sauce!

Ground beef seems to appear on my weekly menu quite often.

Between my turkey picadillo lettuce wraps and lean ground beef zoodles, I mean I just love to ground up some beef!

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m all about easy recipes around here. I’m not the type to be in the kitchen for 200 hours a day, working on a 7-course meal. Hell to the no. Who’s got that kind of time?!

Growing up, I saw my mom make 3 course meals for all of us DAILY and let me tell you…nah, I ain’t about that life. I want easy, simple, flavorful and on to the next one!

That’s why I like to make ground beef (and other similar easy recipes). You can pretty much pair it with anything! Tastes delicious and did I mention it was easy?

With that said, I present to you with CHEESEBURGER SALAD!

 

Only the easiest, heartiest, and most delicious salad ever!

See you get some ground sirloin (or any lean ground beef, really), brown it in a skillet with spices, onions, and garlic then you throw it on some romaine lettuce. Add tomatoes, shredded cheese and the best part of it all???

BIG MAC SAUCE!

[insert drool here]

Man, I haven’t had a Big Mac in YEARS but that sauce is unforgettable. I was able to bring it life with the help of one of my favorite blogger’s recipe – Andie! Basically, it’s a variation of Thousand Island dressing using a mix of Greek yogurt and mayo but you can totally just use mayo, if you’re on a keto diet.

Tastes sooo tangy and creamy!

Of course, I had to add Trader Joe’s Everything Bagel Seasoning on top because duh. A Big Mac is served on sesame seed bun, right? I added lots of Everything Bagel Seasoning for good measure. ;)

Listen, this is pretty much a burger without a bun and it’s awesome. A low-carb, cheesy, burger salad with some bomb ass sauce. YUM.

TRY IT!
