A salad that’s eaten using chips instead of a fork? No wonder this gloriously green creation has gone viral!

Packed full of green goodness, this Green Goddess Salad went ballistic on TikTok, with the original recipe posted by Baked by Melissa clocking up more than 18 million views. It’s super easy to make, healthy and filling and a great twist on a traditional salad.

It’s essentially a vegan pesto type of dressing that can really be made with whatever green veggies you have in the fridge. Just tweak and tune the recipe to your liking – swap out the nuts for different types, switch out the herbs or use a different oil. Although this salad makes a brilliant side dish, if you pair it with some pita chips, it’s just asking to be gobbled down as a meal on its own!

Have a look at how quick it is to make:

  • 1 small head green cabbage
  • 3-4 baby cucumbers or one large
  • 1/4 cup chives
  • 1 bundle green onion/scallions
  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • 1 cup spinach leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 small shallot
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup nuts of your choice (I used cashews and walnuts)
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbl rice vinegar
  • Extra chives (optional)


  1. Wash and then chop all salad ingredients (green cabbage, baby cucumbers, chives, green onions) as small as you’d like and place in a big bowl.
  2. Add all liquid salad dressing ingredients (lemon juice, olive oil, rice vinegar) to a blender, then add the rest of the dressing ingredients (basil leaves, spinach leaves, garlic, shallot, nuts, yeast, salt chives) to the same blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Pour dressing over salad mix and enjoy with a chip or two!

  • Looks really yummy…. will try for sure!


  • Lovely salad ! I’m not keen on dressings but would happily add the dry ingredients of the dressing such as nuts and nutritional yeast as it is :)


  • I like the addition of lemons. Could work well. Thanks for the recipe.


  • What a healthy salad but not for my liking sorry


  • wow, loving the look of this recipe as it is al the kinds of ingredients i like to eat.


  • Not something I’d likely make but once again will share with family


  • Okay…this does look interesting. Kind of like a pesto coleslaw combination.


  • Yummmm! We want to eat more plant based foods. I will definately be giving this a whirl.


  • Yummy indeed


  • That looks delicious.


  • I’d try it without the yeast.


  • I’d make this and serve as a dip. Looks delish!


  • Interesting but I really don’t think I would bother whipping it up but to do all those ingredients is for more than person, I do love eating salad.


  • Very green! Hadn’t heard of nutritional yeast before, so did some research, thank you.


  • Thanks for this it sounds lovely and pretty simple to jazz up by changing a few ingredients really great idea.
