Spinach Chopped Green Salad

 So I have been following Jamie Oliver too!  The first thing I did was go to the library and request all his cookbooks.  This is a chop salad I made out of one of them...can't remember which one...This recipe is a little bit modified to go with  what I had on hand! 

Ingredients

Salad
Cucumber
Avocado
Cilantro (fresh just leaves no stems)
Green onion
Alfalfa sprouts
Baby spinach

Dressing
Olive oil
Red wine vinegar
Dijon mustard
Fresh ground pepper

Chop all salad ingredients, add half to bowl, make a well in the middle of salad bowl and add olive oil, red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, and a little fresh ground pepper.  Toss salad, and add rest of ingredients.  Enjoy!


Cilantro is a good source of folic acid, and also helps detox heavy metals out of your system including mercury, lead and cadmium.
Spinach also a good source of folic acid, calcium, and whole list of nutrients!

Hi Angie. I love that sald. It must be delicious.

I have a question. Is the link in Note from a Cookie Jar only for Jamie Oliver's recipes?
