I am WAY behind on the 'Jennifer Aniston salad' trend that swept TikTok a few months back, but I knew I'd get to It eventually. It finally landed on my weekly priority list ( I blame two babies ) when my mom was in town and I am so glad It did. I swear I will make this one once a week!
I swapped out some ingredients, added a few as well, and let me just say ... I now understand the hype.
It is simple, light, and refreshing while also satisfying and comforting ... which is saying a lot for a salad.
This would be the BEST meal prep recipe and you could add the dressing ( which is just EVOO + lemon + sea salt ) as you go throughout the week.
I highly recommend trying It with farro, but if you have a gluten allergy quinoa would work great!
Throw It all in a bowl and call It a day!
2 cups cooked farro / quinoa / barley
1 large cucumber, diced
1 cup chickpeas ( optional )
1/2 large red onion, diced
1/2 - 3/4 cup vegan feta, crumbled ( amount based preference )
1 bunch radish, diced
1 cup parsley, diced
1/2 cup mint, diced
1/2 cup pistachios, rough chopped
1/2 tsp sea salt ( more to taste )
2 tbsp olive oil ( more to taste )
1 large lemon ( more to taste )
Add all your ingredients to a large bowl. Drizzle on your olive oil and add your lemon juice and sea salt. Mix well. Taste and adjust flavors according to preference!
