This green salad is more exciting than it sounds

Viral TikTok recipes often veer into the decadent category (million dollar spaghetti, we’re looking at you), but the latest is a light, healthy dish: the green goddess salad. This isn’t your average salad recipe though: it’s more of a salad-dip hybrid, mixed to resemble a sort of guacamole. Read on for the recipe.

What Is TikTok’s Green Goddess Salad Recipe?

TikTok is awash with twists on the green goddess salad right now, but the original dish was created by Melissa Ben-Ishay. Although Melissa is best known for the cupcakes she bakes for her brand, Baked By Melissa, she went viral recently after posting a video for a chopped vegan salad. The recipe is made by combining green cabbage, cucumber and other veggies to create a kind of chunky dip, which you can enjoy alongside tortilla or pitta chips.
