Mixed Greens, Turkey, Avocado, Tomato and Cheddar Cheese with Celery Seed Dressing for Mommy

This is what I had for lunch today, and to be honest, it's all about the dressing. This salad dressing is the best dressing I have ever had. My Mother-in-law's dear friend Eileen, who is probably one of the best cooks I know, came up with this dressing. If it were socially acceptable I'd probably do shots of it. That's how good it is!

Handful organic mixed green salad
1/4 cup cherry tomatoes sliced in half
1/2 avocado diced
1-2 slices roasted turkey cut up, or shredded with your hand
1 slice cheddar cheese
(You can add anything to this salad. This is what I had in my fridge, so it's what I added. I've put black olives, celery, raspberries, blueberries in it as well.)

Celery Seed Dressing:
1 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground mustard
1/4 cup vinegar
1 tsp celery seed

Mix together sugar, salt, mustard and vinegar. Add 1 cup oil 1 tbsp at a time beating continually until it thickens. Fold in celery seed. Put in covered jar & refrigerate. (Makes a bottle of salad dressing) I put 2 tblsp  over my salad.
