Big Mac Salad with “Special Sauce”

In Dinner, Lunch.

I saw this roaming around on the internet. It was a perfect way to adjust to fit my plan.

My plan calls for:

96% ground beef & Melt (butter)

I subbed my butter for a little bit of Mayo Light & Shredded Cheese.

I prepped my ground beef for a few meals with the following ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1-2tsp garlic powder
  • 1-2tsp onion powder
  • 1-2tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a skillet and cook until the meet is no longer pink.

I then made up some mock ‘Special Sauce’. I eyeballed most of it

  • Yellow mustard (prepared)
  • Ketchup (low sugar)
  • Apple Cider Vinegar (splash)
  • Paprika (couple dashes, then maybe one more)
  • Garlic & Onion powder, dash each
  • 8-10g light mayonnaise (you can sub greek yogurt here too, coming from your protein)

Mix the above in a bowl. Take a taste and add in more of anything you think it needs. Optional add in is diced white onion.

Make your salad!

  • Lettuce
  • Ground beef
  • Cheese
  • Diced pickles
  • Onions (I add purple)
  • Bell Peppers opt
  • Special Sauce
  • Scant of sesame seeds (optional)
