Big Mac Salad - the Thrive Low Carb Way!

The Thrive Low Carb Way!
by Kay Curtiss

I've been reorganizing around my house today and time got away from me and I realized I was hungry. I'd seen a recipe for a Big Mac Salad from Our Abundant Blessings Blog and pinned it to one of my boards.  It sounded good but I didn't have any hamburger thawed to make a burger - THRIVE to the rescue again --  I love my Thrive Home Store!

Remember the Big Mac jingle?  
Well, I've made up a new one for the Big Mac Salad
the Thrive Low Carb Way! --

Thrive freeze dried beef, special sauce, 
lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions 
And don't need that sesame seed bun!

So here's you go -- my Thrive version of the:

FD - Freeze Dried
Thrive product numbers are for Pantry sized cans
THM friendly "S" recipe.


Special Sauce:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons my Sugar Free Sweet Fire Ketchup or any sugar-free ketchup
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
2 Tablespoons dill pickle relish

Romaine lettuce
1/4 - 1/2 cup Thrive FD Ground Beef (#22564), reconstituted
2 Tablespoons Thrive FD Diced Tomatoes (#22241) or grape tomatoes cut in half
Dill pickles, chopped
1 Tablespoon Thrive FD Onions (#22227) or Onion, chopped
2 Tablespoons Thrive FD Cheddar cheese (#22440), right out of the can! Adds a nice crunch!


Mix up the sauce and let the flavors blend for about an hour (if you can wait - I couldn't so used it right away and it was delicious!)

Layer your salad ingredients in the order listed
Look at that wonderful ground beef and cheddar cheese.
This salad has the grape tomatoes cut up and
I love big pieces of onion so I cut one up! 
However, both the Thrive Tomato Dices and Onions
are in my Home Store for a future salad! 

Add your dressing and ENJOY!  

Now wasn't that easy?
