The Keto Big Mac Salad That’ll Satisfy Your Fast Food Craving
Get your Big Mac fix without all the carbs!
Just thinking about a Big Mac makes me want one… Mouth-watering special sauce and flavor combinations that make your taste buds jump for joy! Drooling over here. 🤤
The good news is that you can have your Big Mac and eat it too – but in a keto-friendly salad form! This tasty Keto Big Mac Salad will satisfy your cravings and leave you feeling comfortably full.
You’ll be putting this special sauce on everything.
The Big Mac “special sauce” is so easy to whip up and uses minimal ingredients that you might already have including mustard, dill pickles, and mayo.
I recommend making this sauce ahead of time if you can, and then just keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to enjoy. The flavors really come together after a bit of chill time. You can also use whatever sauce is leftover as a dipping sauce for veggies or chicken. It’s so good on just about everything. 😋
Quick and easy does it.
What I love most about the Keto Big Mac Salad is that everything can be easily thrown together in just a few steps. You don’t have to carefully separate and combine a zillion different ingredients for it to taste great.
This recipe is enough to feed 4-6 people, but can be doubled to feed more. It also makes a great second-day meal, so don’t hesitate to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow (I did!).
Hip Tip: If you like tomato and sesame seeds on your burgers, add them to your salad for extra flavor!
Chopping the onions and cooking the ground beef is the most work that you’ll do for this recipe. Once that’s done, you can mix up your Big Mac sauce and prepare the rest of the salad in no time.
Hip Tip: Minimize onion tears by using a food chopper! It’ll also save you a few minutes of prep time too. You may also want to check out all of the ways Collin minimizes onion tears on Hip2Save! 😉

I recommend keeping the cooked meat separate from the salad mixture until you’re ready to serve so it doesn’t fall to the bottom of your salad bowl.
When the salad mixture is ready, drizzle with your Big Mac sauce and eat up!
