Where does ๐Ÿฅ— - green salad emoji come from?

The green salad emoji was first tossed in 2016 under Unicode 9.0. It joined a long list of other healthy options, including the avocado emoji ๐Ÿฅ‘, the carrot emojiย ๐Ÿฅ•, and the cucumber emojiย ๐Ÿฅ•.

Across platforms, the green salad emoji depicts a simple salad in a white bowl with lettuce, tomatoes, and other vegetables, such as cucumbers, onions, and black olives, as the screenshot from Emojipedia shows below.

In the above screenshot, you might note a hardboiled egg in Google's design.ย In June 2018, Google removed that egg. One of Google's UX managers, Jennifer Daniel, joked that the decision was meant to be more inclusive of vegans, though apparently the change was made to be more in line with the Unicode description of the emoji. People were opinionated about the loss of the egg ... let's just leave it at that.

As we've seen with the eggplant ๐Ÿ† and peach emoji ๐Ÿ‘, the green salad emoji readily lent itself to sexual innuendo, specifically "tossing someone's salad," slang for stimulating someone's anus since the 1970s.

Who uses ๐Ÿฅ— - green salad emoji ?

The green salad emoji is a fresh, healthy symbol to highlight clean eating and living. It is a frequent tag on social-media posts and in text messages to showcase diets or workout plans.
