JENNIFER ANISTON SALAD

JENNIFER ANISTON SALAD

Greetings! I hope this post finds you well. I finally got around to adding my flair to the Jennifer Aniston’s Salad. I must admit I can tell what all the rave is definitely about. According to sources, Jennifer ate this salad religiously for 10 years on the set of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. So I did a little digging and a lot of sources refer to Jennifer Aniston salad as a Cobb Salad, but this salad is far from a Cobb Salad.

Now the original recipe calls for bulgur. What’s bulgur? That’s the same thing that I asked myself.

Bulgur. Parched cracked wheat, according to Webster Dictionary.

I was unable to locate bulgur, so I opted to use Seeds of Change Quinoa & Brown Rice with Garlic. I think it added a very tasty flavor to the salad. I will continue to look for the bulgur to compare the flavor profile and be sure to update you all.

Now let’s talk more about this salad. I’m always looking for a filling and hearty meal, so let me tell you this salad checks all the boxes. The garbanzo beans or chickpeas make this dish an entree on its own. I also used roasted and salted Pistachios and I don’t regret it a bit. I can definitely see why Jennifer Aniston ate this salad daily, it is the BOMB.com.

The Jennifer Aniston Salad is super versatile I had been eating it as an entree, but I can also see serving it as a side salad. If you have to have meat on your salad ground turkey or grilled chicken would be a great addition also. I would suggest trying the salads as it is and then deciding if you want to add more protein.  I can’t was to serve this at our next get-together and see how wowed everyone is by it.

If you make the salad I would love to know what you think of it. Be sure to come back and leave me a comment. Be Well-Omniley
