I once ate a salad as big as a man.

Can I eat as much salad as I like (assuming the salad doesn't have per se bad stuff in it)?

I love salad--always have. I'm being more mindful of portions these days, though primarily with carbs like pasta and animal products. If I'm still hungry after a picayune piece of chicken, can I eat as much salad as I please?
"Salad" for this purpose is a leafy green or two (romaine, arugula), carrots, celery, radish, tomato, and maybe some sprouts, dressed with some (not a lot) of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. It never has nuts, bacon bits, creamy dressings, or cheese.
Provided I had the will, could I eat a pound of salad? Two pounds of salad? Is there a point at which I should stop eating delicious salad?
