Summer is one of the best times to lose some weight. In fact, temperatures rise and hunger generally subsides and at the same time we drink and move more frequently. Furthermore, the heat eliminates the desire to cook elaborate dishes and turn on the stove, leaving more space for raw vegetables, legumes and fresh fruit. So just let your imagination run wild and use some high-fiber, low-calorie ingredients to get a quick and healthy meal to prepare. Today we make an example of this, revealing a “sin of gluttony” of a very famous and beloved actress. In fact, the beautiful Jennifer Aniston on the set of Friends ate this tasty and nutrient-rich salad. Let’s find out how to prepare it together.

- 20 g of bulgur wheat;
- 2 cucumbers;
- fresh parsley to taste;
- fresh mint to taste;
- 50 g of cooked chickpeas;
- 1 red onion;
- 50 g of feta cheese;

The beautiful Jennifer Aniston on the set of Friends ate this delicious salad that would help you feel good and keep your figure
Legend has it that this complete dish was Jennifer Aniston’s lunch for all the filming of the show Friends, which lasted 10 long years. To get it, you first need to boil the bulgur in twice the amount of water your weight. The time needed to cook it is about ten minutes. In this time the cereal will absorb the liquid, greatly increasing its weight. While this is cooking, take a large saucepan and crumble the fresh feta into it. Then drain the cooked chickpeas in the indicated quantity and combine them in the container. If you wanted to prepare from scratch, we recommend using seaweed in cooking to make them tender and creamy like butter.
Take a red onion, preferably from Tropea, wash it and slice it into very fine strips. Take the cucumbers, wash them, remove the waste parts and slice them into cubes. Finally, take the mint and parsley and wash them under running water, chopping them finely. Put everything in the same container. Season with extra virgin olive oil, salt and lemon. Mix well and start serving. For a crunchy and delicious “topping”, coarsely grind the pistachios with a knife and sprinkle their powder over them.
