Turns out viral recipes run in the family. On Sunday, Bella Hadid shared how to make her "number one salad" on TikTok, and her video has already amassed over two million views on the platform. With minimal ingredients and preparation involved, the model's recipe is easy to throw together, not to mention full of fresh veggies and a delicious combination of flavours.
The salad consists of just five main ingredients — rocket, cucumbers, red peppers, parmesan cheese, and avocado — chopped and tossed together, then topped off with lemon, salt, pepper, olive oil, and balsamic glaze. While Hadid eyeballs the measurements herself and substitutions are certainly welcome, the model says the balsamic glaze is a "non-negotiable." She adds, "It's a must I swear."
Hadid has shared cooking videos and recipes for dishes like chicken shawarma and macaroni and cheese in the past, though none have incited quite the reaction her salad has. Ahead, eat like Hadid and learn exactly how to make her famous salad. If arugula and parm don't speak to you, try another viral salad recipe, like Jennifer Aniston's bulgur salad or Baked by Melissa's famous green goddess version.
