They called it the "Jennifer Salad."

On last night's NBC special, Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows, the Friends cast got together again for a long-awaited reunion--minus one Matthew Perry--to honor prolific sitcom director James Burrows, who directed 15 episodes of the series.
It's the first time the crew has gotten together on TV since the beloved show ended in 2004. They've all had their own career adventures since sipping their last cup of coffee at Central Perk, like Courteney Cox starring in the series Cougar Town, Jennifer Aniston in Horrible Bosses and, currently, David Schwimmer playing Robert Kardashian--dad of the famous clan--on American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.
The NBC special gave the crew the opportunity to catch up and reminisce about old times.
In between praising the director, the cast shared some behind-the-scenes secrets about the series. One particularly great cast ritual: Lisa Kudrow, Cox and Aniston ate lunch together every day for 10 years.
"And we ate the same food: a Jennifer salad," Cox said.
Lucky for us, Cox revealed back in 2010 what's in the "Jennifer" salad: It's a twist on a Cobb, with garbanzo beans added, and turkey bacon instead of regular bacon.
Aniston shared her new favorite salad last year on the Living Proof Instagram account, so we can imagine what the castmates would lunch on today: "My perfect salad - Bulgar, cucumbers, parsley, mint, red onion, garbanzo beans, feta cheese, & pistachios," she captioned the tasty pic.
The Friends crew also set a rumor straight during the chat: They didn't sign contracts saying they wouldn't sleep with each other. Well, at least Kudrow says she didn't.
And the most heartwarming tidbit: The cast genuinely liked hanging out together from the start of the show.
"We really just wanted to hang out with each other," Aniston said. "It was not a 'We have to do this.' We really just fell in love and adored each other instantly. We'd hang out at each other's houses and watch the show together."
Insert collective "Aww" here.
