Big Mac Salad Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 small onion diced
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 6 cups iceberg lettuce
  • 2 tsp granulated garlic or to taste
  • 2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper or to taste
  • 1/2 cup dill pickles sliced
  • sesame seeds

Big Mac Sauce Ingredients


  • First, start by making the Big Mac sauce. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, ketchup, vinegar, mustard, dill relish, onion powder and paprika. Set aside for now.
  • Season the ground beef with salt, pepper and granulated garlic.
  • Cook the beef in a large pan over medium heat until it browns. This will probably take about 10-12 minutes. Use a meat chopper to break the meat up into large chunks. Once you’re finished cooking the ground beef, drain the excess fat.
  • Chop the lettuce, onion and pickles.
  • In a bowl, combine the ground beef, lettuce, diced onion, pickle slices and cheese.
  • Drizzle the salad with big mac sauce and toss to combine.
  • Top the salad with sesame seeds if desired and serve.


  • Use keto friendly ketchup for this recipe. This one works well.
  • I used cheddar cheese for this recipe but that can be substituted for any other cheese of your choice.
  • Top the ground beef with cheese immediately when serving if you want the cheese to melt a little over the salad.
