Viral Green Goddess Salad

You have to live under a very large rock to have missed the viral takeover that is Baked by Melissa‘s green goddess salad. I think I gave it until I saw Lizzo post it before I knew it was time to grab my blender.

Ingredients for Green Goddess Salad

Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 small head of green cabbage

  • 2 Tbsp of rice wine vinegar 
  1. Wash and finely dice all of the salad ingredients. Place in a large bowl.

I ate this with pita chips and it was a joyous moment. I can understand why this became viral. It is so fresh and filling. This was my lunch for the next few days and was just as good on Day 7 as it was on Day 1.
