The Keto Big Mac Salad is the perfect way to enjoy a new “keto approved” version of the very iconic takeaway burger!

I really need to say that this keto salad recipe is perfectly delicious even if you were never a fan of the McDonalds burger. 

Personally I was never a Big Mac Burger person. However, these days I love beef and I have always been a pickle fan, so this kind of salad is totally up my alley.

I think we are always looking for cheap and easy keto salad recipes that can all be made in a flash and this is just one of those recipes. You can make this for dinner ad serve the meat hot with the salad or it is perfect to made ahead of time as well. Think great lunch box salad for the school yard or the office, and also perfect as a keto mason jar salad.
