Fresh, Bright, and refreshing salad

So what is this Jennifer Aniston Salad?

This Jennifer Aniston salad is somewhat reminiscent of a tabouli salad. Filled with quinoa or bulgur wheat, this provides a solid base to the salad that makes it eat like a meal. It’s not only delicious and packed with a ton of flavour, but it also has the perfect amount of protein, smart carbs, healthy fats, and veggies – all the components of a good meal-sized salad.

  • Herbs – Mint and parsely keep this dish freshhhh
