green goddess salad

I saw this chopped cabbage salad all over tik tok and I HAD to see what the fuss what about.

And it’s amazing. Seriously. Christian ate it, the babysitter ate it, I ate it for a week. You can also tweak it a few ways to make it your own, so we’ll talk about that as well.

I have only made this recipe once and it makes a HUGE portion. So next time I will consider halving it. Just a thought! Scroll for recipe –

cabbage saladbaked by melissa salad


one head cabbage, finely chopped

2-3 cucumbers, finely chopped

1/4 cup chives, diced

1 bundle green onions


juice of 2 lemons

1/4 cup olive oil

2 TB rice vinegar

2 cloves garlic

1 shallot

1/3 cup chives

1/4 cup walnuts or cashews (I actually did 1/4 cup of both!)

1 cup fresh basil leaves

1 cup fresh spinach

1/3 cup nutritional yeast

1 tsp salt

Optional: 1 avocado (I used this), 1-2 fresh jalapeños


It’s a lot of chopping – but I promise it’s worth it!

Blend all dressing ingredients in a blender until smooth and delicious. Taste and season additionally as preferred.

The original recipe shows the creator eating it with blue corn tortilla chips (as pictured), but I’ve also put it on top of a toasted low-carb tortilla that had refried beans spread on it. Top with the salad and it’s like a quick and easy tostada.

If you try this – let me know what you think! Thanks so much for reading and you can find more of my favorite recipes under “home –> food & drink.” XO –

  1. Thank you for this post! I’ve been thinking about trying this recipe and now it’s a definite. I’ll be making this salad this weekend.

  2. What purpose does the nutritional yeast serve? Is is required? I’m not very wise about anything cooking, hence my question. Thank you.

    1. I’m not a recipe creator so I don’t really know – but I do think it adds to the flavor. You don’t HAVE to use any ingredient necessarily, but you can usually find nutritional yeast at the grocery!

  3. Looks so good! Definitely going to try as your other salads I have tried were excellent! What size MC bowl is this is the reels on Insta?

  4. This looks delicious and will be perfect for the half of a head of cabbage I have in the fridge and don’t know what to do with. ;- )

    I’ve still never been on TikTok but who knew it was a place for recipes!
