Big Mac Salad

This is a great dinner recipe, and if you keep the meat and dressing separate, makes a great take along lunch. I have also just made the dressing and used it on regular (bunless) burgers. You can also crumble up leftover hamburger patties to make this.

Big Mac Salad



  • 1 lb Ground beef
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 8 oz lettuce Romaine or Iceberg
  • 1/4 cup diced onions
  • 1 cup tomatoes, diced (optional)
  • 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup Pickles, diced


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp pickles, finely diced
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sweetener (start small and add to taste)


  • Bacon
  • Avocado
  • Mushrooms


  • Brown ground beef…drain if necessary
  • Meanwhile, mix all the dressing ingredients in a blender. If dressing is too thick thin out with cream or water.
  • Adjust sweetener to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Combine the remaining salad ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Add the ground beef.
  • Add in any other “burger” topping you might like. (Bacon, avocado)
  • Toss with dressing.
