Jamie Oliver's Everyday Green Chopped Salad

I wasn't feeling well yesterday morning/afternoon, so I just laid in bed and ended up in the all too familiar Youtube black hole. I couldn't stop watching food videos (I'm a weirdo I know) and this one seemed especially delicious. I NEVER crave salad and I used to hate eating any salad that I make because those are so boring, but no more of that nonsense. I went to Whole Foods with my mom and sis, and we picked up some veggies and sherry vinegar in addition to Thanksgiving necessities.

Key points from Jamie's video:
  1. For the dressing, use a 3:1 ratio of oil to acid, a dash of salt and pepper, plus any additional add-ins. I used extra virgin olive oil and sherry vinegar, but lemon or lime or balsamic would also work, plus dijon mustard and honey.
  2. The best way to dress a salad is with your hands.
  3. Avocado brings all salads to the next level!
The recipe is all common sense, but I feel much more comfortable making a complex salad after Jamie Oliver has convinced me how easy it is.
