A crunchy coleslaw inspired salad with a creamy dreamy green, herby dressing! This recipe is TikTok famous, and for good reason! If you love a good 1-bowl chopped salad that’s full of flavour, you’ll love this viral TikTok Green Goddess Salad.
I’m not a huge TikTok scroller, but every now and again I’ll come across a recipe that I just have to try. This Green Goddess Salad is crunchy but light. It involves lots of chopping and lots of green ingredients, hence the name! It’s really packed full of fresh and bright flavour with a hint of tang. It’s kind of like a crunchy coleslaw meets guacamole. This recipe was originally created by Baked by Melissa, and you can check out her TikTok right here!
How to make the Green Goddess Salad
The salad itself is made with really simple ingredients. All you have to do is finely dice cabbage, cucumbers, green onions, and chives. The dressing is Melissa’s take on a traditional green goddess dressing, however it’s quite different to the original recipe which included ingredients like anchovies, mayo and sour cream. This creamy vegan dressing is made with rice vinegar, raw walnuts and nutritional yeast to name a few, and reminds me of a pesto meets caesar dressing with a tangy, herby and (very!) green twist!
Top Tips for the TikTok Green Goddess Salad
Make a lot of dressing – The base of this salad is cabbage, which soaks up dressing easily. When making this recipe, I suggest making a big batch of dressing so that it coats everything easily, and add extra liquid where needed. You’ll also need a powerful blender to get it the right consistency, and a good lemon squeezer.
Serving suggestion – You can eat this green goddess salad as is, or you could use it as a dip. Personally, I really enjoyed serving it up on corn tostadas with a spread of warmed refried pinto beans. Perfect for a party snack or satisfying lunch!
Experiment with ingredients – This is a great way to dress up and take any simple salad to the next level. Use a big mixing bowl, since this salad has a ton of delicious ingredients!
Great for meal prepping! – This salad stays crunchy and fresh in the fridge for 2-3 days so it’s great for meal prepping lunches for the week. I recommend dressing it if you’re planning to store it, since the acid in the dressing will help to keep it fresh.
