A Big Mac Burger from McDonald’s is one of the most popular burgers among the Fast Food Industry.  But as much as many of us love hamburgers, many of us try to refrain from eating burgers often, me included.

I had a taste for a Big Mac Burger but instead of giving in to the temptation, I decided to create a Big Mac inspired Salad.  Giving you all of the things you love about a Big Mac minus the burger buns.
