There are so many times I wish I could go back to the days where I carelessly ate. Carelessly ordered burgers with buns and french fries and devoured it without even thinking about the nutrition label or how much fat this is loaded with. I absolutely love cheeseburgers, quarter pounder’s, whoppers and even chicken sandwiches from Chick-fil-a. Naturally, my life is all about the nutrition label except on Sundays, but even then I am thinking about the nutrition label. I adapted this recipe from my favorite gal, Andie Mitchell but like always I opt for more protein an tweak it in ways I think tastes even more delightful. Never would have I ever imagined taking a big mac to lettuce but holy moly this salad is like eating a Big Mac or Cheeseburger. The secret; all in the dressing. Give this a try you’re whole family will love it, unless they aren’t all about salads.
Feel free to substitute wherever. You can opt for turkey meat, bison. Type of lettuce. Mayo instead of greek yogurt. Recipe yields 4.
