Jennifer Aniston Clears Up Friends Salad Recipe Rumors

Jennifer Aniston Clears Up Friends Salad Recipe Rumors

Jennifer Aniston has put an end to years of speculation about the salad she would eat for lunch every day while filming Friends.

The Hollywood actress is said to have regularly enjoyed a modified Cobb salad during the filming of the hit sitcom, and a recipe that claimed to recreate the dish later became a viral sensation after it appeared on TikTok in recent years.

However, adamant that the recipe isn’t her salad, Jennifer tells Shape, “I’m sorry, I feel like I’m disappointing everyone, but that’s not my salad. It looks delicious, but it’s not the salad that I had on Friends. .”

Featured in thousands of social media posts, the dish known as the Jennifer Aniston salad consists of bulgur, cucumbers, parsley, mint, red onion, chickpeas, feta cheese, and chopped pistachios.

However, Jennifer says her salad was “completely different” and actually consisted of lettuce, chicken, egg whites, garbanzo beans, bacon, and a vinaigrette dressing, while sometimes adding pecorino cheese to the dish.

In a previous interview with Elle, Jennifer insisted the viral recipe has too many chickpeas, adding, “(I) honestly would never have that many chickpeas in a salad. Not good for the digestive tract.”

The salad story is said to have started in 2010 when Jennifer’s Friends co-star Courteney Cox mentioned the cast’s lunchtime habits in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

She revealed that she and Jennifer, Lisa Kudrow and herself would eat the same meal every day — and it was a recipe created by Jennifer.

Courteney told the publication: “Jennifer and Lisa (Kudrow) and I had lunch together every day for 10 years. And we always had the same thing – a Cobb salad. But it wasn’t really a Cobb salad. It was a Cobb salad. salad Jennifer edited with turkey bacon and garbanzo beans and I don’t know what.

“She just has a thing for food, that really helps. Because if you’re going to eat the same salad every day for 10 years, it better be a good salad, right?”
