Ingredients for your Big Mac Salad

The full recipe with ingredient amounts and instructions is at the bottom of this post. You can save a tree and the recipe to your personal and private recipe box here on Call Me PMc. This way, you’ll never misplace it.

  • Mayo. You can use light mayo or olive oil mayo.
  • Ketchup.
  • Mustard.
  • Bread and Butter Pickles (minced) or you can use relish.
  • Minced Onion
  • Vinegar or Pickle Juice
  • Lettuce shredded. Iceberg lettuce is authentic to the Big Mac, but Romaine has more nutrients. Furthermore, you can use any lettuce or salad blend. I always prefer spring lettuce mix. Kale or Spinach would be good too.
  • Cooked Hamburger. Of course, you can substitute lower-in-fat ground turkey or chicken.
  • Cheddar Cheese, shredded. (Don’t use pre-shredded.)
  • Dill Pickles. Store-bought or homemade dill pickles. (Also, try my dill pickle martini.)
  • Tomatoes, optional

How do I Meal Prep a Keto Cheeseburger Salad?

The main two things to prep this cheeseburger salad are making your sauce and cooking the hamburger meat. The most important thing to remember when meal prepping a salad is the order in which you layer the ingredients.

What do I need to prep a salad?

First, I recommend you use a 32-ounce (1 quart) canning jar. A wide-mouth jar is preferable, but sometimes hard to find. Regular top jars will work too. I like to prep salads in glass jars, but you can use a bowl that has a secure lid.

How do I layer a Hamburger or Cheeseburger Salad?

Furthermore, you don’t want the dressing and meat to wilt the lettuce. Therefore, the lettuce will always go in last. Layer your cheeseburger salad ingredients in the jars in this order: Salad dressing, cooked hamburger meat, onions, pickles, tomatoes, cheese, and lettuce.
