This salad is great when you are craving fast food, but want to watch calories! It has all the flavor of a Big Mac but with healthy whole ingredients. I used a store-bought veggie burger in each salad, but you can make your own burgers too.

Whats In This Vegan Big Mac Salad?

  • Lettuce: as the salad base!  I used romaine, but you can use whatever you have on hand… even spinach would be delish.
  • Veggie Burger: a used a vegan burger patty, but you can use whatever you have.
  • Tomatoes: for a little freshness
  • Chopped pickles: because #yum
  • Special Sauce: a creamy and tangy dairy free dressing that will remind you of taking a big bite of the classic hamburger.

The sauce really makes this salad taste amazing! I used a fat free yogurt, but any type would work. Just make sure its plain and unsweetened.

Dietary Modifications

  • This is vegan, but if you do eat animal products then you can use any burger patty you have.
  • This is naturally gluten free!
