Jennifer Aniston stated the ‘Friends’ salad recipe is different from TikTok.

If you search “Jennifer Aniston salad” on TikTok, you’ll find dozens and dozens of videos, some with more than 10 million views, that claim to be her favourite salad recipe.

Now, Jennifer Aniston is denying the recipe, which she says is “totally different” from the famous On the set of “Friends,” she ate salad every day for ten years.

Aniston told Shape, “I feel like I’m letting everyone down, but that’s not my salad.” “It looks good, but it’s not the salad I had on Friends.”


The story about Aniston’s salad spread in 2010 when her co-star Courteney Cox told the Los Angeles Times about it.

“For ten years, Jennifer, Lisa Kudrow, and I ate lunch together every day. We always had the same thing to eat: a Cobb salad, “Cox said. “But it was nothing like a Cobb salad. Jennifer made a Cobb salad with turkey bacon and garbanzo beans; I don’t know what else.

“She just knows how to cook, which is very helpful,” Cox said. “Because if you eat the same salad every day for a month, ten years, it should be a good salad, right?”

After Cox’s interview over ten years ago, Aniston’s salad started going viral on TikTok as food bloggers tried to re-create the recipe or give their versions. People say that in January, a video from @themodernnonna helped create the trend. Even after five months, it’s still going strong, and there are new videos every week.


Most of the videos have the same ingredients: bulgur, cucumbers, parsley, mint, red onion, feta cheese, chopped pistachios, and a whole can of chickpeas.

In a recent interview with Elle, Aniston slammed the recipe, saying she would never put so many chickpeas in a salad because it’s “not good for the digestive tract.”

The “Friends” star told Shape her actual salad recipe, which The salad had shredded lettuce, chicken, egg whites, bacon, “a couple of garbanzo beans,” and a basic vinaigrette. Some days, she also put Pecorino cheese on top, which she got from an Italian restaurant nearby.

But when Aniston talks, TikTok listens. The Modern Nonna has already come out with new video ingredients from Aniston.
