Jennifer Aniston fans are sampling a salad recipe that would have been a go-to for the Hollywood actress for years.
TikTok user and food blogger Snejana Andreeva of The Modern Nonna started the “Jennifer Aniston Salad” trend on social media with an improvised recipe she created from old posts she read that claim Aniston’s “perfect salad” includes eight easy ingredients.
Andreeva told Fox News Digital that she skipped one ingredient — the chickpeas — and added her own lemon juice and olive oil dressing to better suit her “taste palate,” but she still made a TikTok video and blog post that lists the ingredients Aniston uses to make her perfect salad.

“I don’t know the exact measurements, so I just improvised and based it on consistency,” Andreeva wrote in an email.
- 1 cup cooked bulgur
- ½ cup diced red onion
- ½ cup chopped parsley
- ½ cup chopped mint
- ½ cup chopped pistachios
- ½ cup chopped cucumber
- A handful of crumbled feta
- Optional: chickpeas
- Optional: Lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste
To make the Jennifer Aniston salad, according to Andreeva’s viral TikTok recipe, you’ll need cooked bulgur, red onions, parsley, mint, pistachios, cucumbers, and feta cheese. However, if you want to follow Aniston’s perfected salad recipe, you’ll also want to add chickpeas.
Andreeva recommends pairing the salad with lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper.

“I would absolutely enjoy it in moderation and recommend it to anyone who wants a delicious filling salad,” Andreeva told Fox News Digital. “It tastes very similar to the iconic tabbouleh salad with a Mediterranean twist if that makes sense. It’s earthy, refreshing and delicious.”
Personally, Andreeva thinks Aniston’s original “perfect salad” recipe tastes best when served with a dressing. However, she encourages people to make adjustments based on their salad preferences.
Andreeva’s TikTok video has been viewed over 1.6 million times and has inspired countless others to try her improvised recipe or create and review their own salad recipes based on interviews Aniston or her ” friends” have given in the past.
Fox News Digital has reached out to representatives who work closely with Aniston for comment.

The post has since been deleted since Aniston parted ways with the brand.

It’s not immediately clear how accurate Andreeva’s recipe might be compared to what Aniston actually eats, but fans are sharing the video on other social media platforms.
The last time Aniston’s salad preferences made celebrity headlines was in 2010 when her “Friends” co-star Courteney Cox told the Los Angeles Times that Aniston ate a Cobb salad. every day they were shooting their hit sitcom, which ran for a decade from 1994 to 2004.
“Jennifer [Aniston] and Lisa [Kudrow] and ate lunch together every day for 10 years,” Cox said in the 12-year-old interview.
“And we always had the same thing – a Cobb salad. But it wasn’t really a Cobb salad. It was a Cobb salad that Jennifer doctored with turkey bacon and chickpeas and I don’t know what” , Cox recalled to the California media. “She just has a sense of food, which really helps. Because if you’re going to eat the same salad every day for 10 years, it better be a good salad, right?”
This original recipe belongs to Snejana Andreeva from The modern nonna and was shared with Fox News.
