Today, the supermarket chain Lidl offers a green goddess salad that has taken social media by storm, and shares its easy-to-prepare recipe.
Browsing social media, we come across cooking tips and recipes from time to time, and even more often we see interesting photos of food. Thus, the whole world learned about the green goddess salad, which makes everything white.
The salad, which uses mainly green ingredients, first appeared on the Tik Tok social network. Here, American blogger and dessert shop founder Melissa shared a quick video showing how to make the salad.
Later, when they eat tortilla chips, they use them as a condiment. In a relatively short time, Melissa’s recipe has received more than 20 million views. users and other popular food blogs started sharing their versions of the salad.
We can thank the woman for the wonderful recipe, which many want to try now, the aforementioned supermarket chain notes that she is not the creator of this salad. Salad named after the Green Goddess was produced in 1923. in San Francisco.
At that time, actor George Arliss, star of the silent film “The Green Goddess”, was staying overnight in one of the city’s hotels. It is believed that the man liked the salad made in the hotel restaurant so much that he personally met the chef who prepared the salad and thanked him personally.
Almost a hundred years have passed since the first green goddess salad was made, so it is not surprising that the recipe for this legendary salad has changed little over time. For example, in the initial list of salad ingredients we can find mustard, eggs, herbal tea, capers and even ice.
However, the salad dressing used in Melissa’s shared recipe is more like a vegetarian version of Italian pesto dressing because it does not use parmesan cheese. Interestingly, the salad dressing is still made according to the original recipe at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.
Green goddess salad is based on different greens, cucumber and cabbage, so it has a special crunch. In addition, the salad can be called healthy thanks to the vitamins contained in the natural ingredients, it is low in calories and fat, and has almost no sugar. Following Melissa’s revival of the recipe, the aforementioned chain offers the salad as a side dish to meat dishes or with bread, crackers and tortilla chips.
