Keep calm, everyone: The mystery of the Kardashian salad obsession has been solved.

Even though we know way too much about the Kardashians (remember that episode when Kim got her butthole painted silver?), they still have a way of piquing our curiosity about the smallest things.

One of the most long-enduring mysteries of Keeping Up With The Kardashians is: what is that takeaway salad they keep eating, and where can I get some? And what is that iced, yellow drink… and, most importantly, is it alcoholic?

In countless episodes of the reality series, many sisterly arguments are fuelled by this salad. What is in this salad which causes Kim, Khloe and Kourtney to have these mundane fascinating discussions?

Kim Kardashian finally solved this culinary riddle, in one fell tweet. She named the Kardashian salad shack of choice as Health Nut, a family owned and operated café in their LA suburb of Calabasas.

And it’s not just one salad that has captured the tastebuds of the Kardashian clan. Kim and her family are fans of two salads from Health Nut. There’s the Chef Salad, which is sliced turkey breast, romaine and iceberg lettuce, shredded mozzarella, tomatoes, sprouts and sunflower seeds, drizzled with home-made Italian dressing.

And the Chinese Chicken Salad, with chow mein noodles, pickled ginger, and carrots on romaine and iceberg lettuce, topped with home-made sesame dressing.

That yellow, iced drink the Kardashian girls are constantly sipping is the Mango Passion Greentini, which is a bewitching combination of mango juice, green tea and honey. Sadly, there is no dash of anything interesting, such as vodka. Maybe on Fridays? (Post continues after gallery.)

Although Kim is known for her expensive tastes –  allegedly splurging $15,000 on a jumping castle for daughter North’s birthday party – her salad and drink choices are surprisingly affordable. The Chef Salad costs $10.75, and the Chinese Chicken Salad leaves you with change from a tenner at only $9.75.

A regular Mango Passion Greentini is a measly $2.95. Who would have thought that you could feast like a Kardashian for under $15? I pay more than that for my lunch.

Since Kim Kardashian revealed the name of her salad joint, the place has been inundated with fans of the reality franchise. We’re not talking your Average Joanne on the street, either. Susan Yara from Glamour magazine made the pilgrimage with a friend, and their extreme excitement is captured in this video.

It’s not just the rich and famous who adore Health Nut. The locals love it, too. One wrote in a Yelp review, “Their homemade dressings are ADDICTING… I can't quite put my finger on what makes the salads so good.”

This reviewer called themselves “Judy C”, but we all know it’s really Kim Kardashian. Nice pseudonym, Kimmy.

Now, all we need is for Kim's husband, Kanye West, to write a rap about it.

I can just see the hit single now: it's called Salad-er, and these are the lyrics: "Let's get salad tonight/ You can be my Health Nut tonight / Drink Greentini, I'm the straw tonight / Don't give a Nut what they all say, right?... Keep makin' it harder, better, faster, salad-er."

Do you have a great salad recipe to share with us? And, tell the truth: do you want to eat a Kardashian salad now, too?
