Bacon Cheeseburger Salad

Low carb and keto friendly bacon cheeseburger salad recipe! The dressing is AMAZING!

So, do you guys remember me telling you how I was in the midst of a diet competition with my husband? The winner gets a big fancy vacation?

Well. The competition ended on December 31 and I’m happy to announce that I kicked his trash. Hard.

How’d I do it? Oh, you know. Bacon. And cheese. And burgers.

I’ve been following a ketogenic diet, which basically means that I’m not eating carbs and I’m really sad and cry all day while baking cookies for my family. It’s pitiful, but man it works. I lost fourteen pounds over the month of December. Yes. I lost weight over Christmas. I win.

Anyway, I’ve been having fun coming up with some low carb recipes and I thought I’d share a favorite with you. This salad is good whether you eat carbs or not. Like, for serious good. The homemade low carb salad dressing is OUTRAGEOUS and I really want to dip french fries in it. *sigh*
