The hunt for the Friends‘ star’s favorite salad began back in 2010, when her co-star and best friend Courteney Cox revealed to The Los Angeles Times that Aniston enjoyed the same “doctored up cobb” everyday for lunch during the NBC sitcom’s run. (Insert joke about Rachel’s last name being Green here.)
Then, in 2015, Aniston finally offered up her “perfect” mix via an Instagram post for her beauty company Living Proof: “Bulgar, cucumbers, parsley, mint, red onion, garbanzo beans, feta cheese, & pistachios.”
Still, a different variation on the Emmy winner’s salad became TikTok-famous earlier this year and received so much hype that Aniston was forced to “debunk” it in an interview with Elle.
“That’s not the salad that I had every day on Friends,” she stated. “I feel terrible because it’s literally taken off like crazy.”
While she acknowledged that the viral take on her supposed go-to salad looked “delicious,” she clarified, “I would never have that much chickpea in a salad, to be honest. Not good for the digestive tract.”
