Jennifer Aniston puts an end to years of confusion about the salad she ate every day for lunch while filming the ’90s sitcom ‘Friends’.
“I’m sorry, I feel like I’m disappointing everyone, but that’s not my salad,” Aniston told Shape on Wednesday during a Zoom interview about the viral recipe. “It looks delicious, but it’s not the salad I had on ‘Friends’.”
The whispers started when Courtney Cox told The LA Times in 2010 that Aniston ate the same “groomed cobb salad” every day on set.
The salad — consisting of bulgur, diced cucumber, parsley, mint, red onion, chickpeas, crumbled feta cheese, and chopped pistachios — has been imitated thousands of times on TikTok and Instagram, and many thought it was made famous by its namesake.
That’s not the case, though, as Aniston has no idea where the “Jennifer Aniston Salad” recipe came from, adding during a Q&A with Elle that “to be honest, she’d never have that many chickpeas in a salad. Not.” good for the digestive tract.”
Her salad of choice at the time was “totally different,” consisting of shredded lettuce, chicken, egg whites, a few garbanzo beans, bacon, and a simple vinaigrette.
Today, beauty is open to more than just salad on a daily basis, as health has become a matter of balance for the television star. †
