What Is A Green Goddess Salad?

The Green Goddess Salad is a viral vegan TikTok recipe made with mostly salad greens, herbs, and all sorts of green ingredients. The result is a refreshing salad packed with vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants, and lots of crunch. Nowadays, there are different takes on this salad – even non-vegan ones — with the essential element being greenness.

Ingredients for TikTok Green Goddess Salad.

Recipe Ingredients

  • Green cabbage: Don’t use purple cabbage.
  • Fresh spinach: You can also use baby spinach. No frozen spinach, please. Use the leaves, not the stems.
  • Persian cucumbers: Regular cucumbers work, too, if you remove most of the seeds.
  • Green onions: Only use the green parts.
  • Fresh orange juice: Lemon juice is a good alternative. Try not to use boxed juice.
  • Unsweetened plain yogurt: Sour cream is also okay to use.
  • Raw honey: Don’t use maple syrup.
  • Olive oil: Provides richness and helps blend the flavors. If you prefer, any neutral oil like avocado or canola oil will also work.
  • Garlic: You could substitute garlic powder for a milder taste.
  • Fresh chives, parsley, cilantro, mint, and basil: These add a cool, refreshing zing and enhance the overall flavor of the salad.

How to Make a Green Goddess Salad

Chop, blend, and toss with the dressing. That’s it!

  1. Make the dressing. Add the orange juice, yogurt, honey, and olive oil to the blender. Then add the garlic, chives, spinach, parsley, cilantro, mint, basil, and salt. Process everything until smooth and creamy. Pour it into a dressing bowl and set it aside.
  2. Make the salad. Mix the cabbage, spinach, cucumbers, and green onions in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Toss it. Add salad dressing to the portion you will consume and toss it until well combined. You can also serve the salad with the dressing on the side.

Recipe Tips And Variations

  • Use a salad mix. Your favorite green salad mix can substitute the cabbage and spinach for this salad, saving you some precious prep time.
  • Taste and adjust. The dressing is perfect even without salt, so I recommend you taste it before adding any.
  • Liquid ingredients first. Add the liquid ingredients to the blender first so that the dressing can blend smoothly.
  • Add protein. Topping the salad with grilled chicken or turkey adds protein and flavor.
  • Make it zesty. Add 1 teaspoon of orange or lemon zest to the dressing for an extra citrusy kick.
  • More add-ins: Pistachios, slivered almonds, diced green apples, chopped walnuts.

Serving Suggestions

On its own, this TikTok Green Goddess Salad is the perfect snack and or meal. However, I love it more as a side dish when paired with other mains like my Garlic Butter Baked Salmon, Juicy Stove Top Chicken Breasts, Oven Grilled Steak, and Marry Me Chicken.

How to Store Leftovers

Once the salad is dressed, store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 day, so it doesn’t lose all of its crunch. If you store the salad and dressing separately, you can keep them in the fridge for up to 5 days.
