Jennifer Aniston Salad

First it was her haircut, now it’s her salad! But for real, the Jennifer Aniston salad does make a great lunch, side dish, or snack. You can also substitute or add whatever you like/have on hand. For example, her recipe calls for pistachios, but I only had almonds, so that’s what I used. I’ll definitely be making it a lot, and FYI, this recipe makes plenty for a crowd!


3 cups cooked quinoa

2 cups cucumbers, chopped

1/2 cup red onion, chopped

1 (15.5 oz) can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

1/4 cup mint, chopped

1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped

1 large lemon, juiced

1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 cup almonds, chopped (or walnuts or pistachios)

3/4 cup crumbled feta

Salt, to taste

Fresh black pepper, to taste


-Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix together. That’s it!

-If making ahead, I recommend adding the lemon juice, olive oil, and nuts right before serving. This keeps the salad/nuts from getting soggy.
