CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) — If you’re on social media, you’ve probably seen posts about the salad Jennifer Aniston is said to have eaten everyday on the set of “Friends.”

Many of the posts about the salad have gone viral.

Just this week the actress told Elle magazine the salad isn’t quite the one she ate.

Still, it looks delicious, and country chef Lee Ann Miller put her spin on the salad (there are two recipes below).

The Jennifer Aniston Salad

(from Katie Couric’s website)
