My signature salad

I have a signature salad. Don't you? I never thought of blogging about it before until one of my favorite colleagues, reporter Mark Price, suggested I share it with the world.

So, watch out world, here's the exciting details about my favorite lunch.

Let me begin by saying I rarely, if ever, go out to lunch. I bring my lunch from home and I can eat the same thing almost every day, which is how my signature salad was born.

I use a mix of dark, leafy greens. Then I throw on a handful of pecans, a handful of blueberries and top it off with blue cheese. For my dressing, I drizzle on Brianna's Dijon Honey Mustard Dressing. During the winter, I mix it up by using dried cranberries instead of blueberries. I know, I'm out of control.

I must admit that my signature salad does generate a lot curiosity. Co-workers comment on it all the time because it looks pretty, it's fairly healthy and they're amazed (or maybe disturbed) that I can nibble on it and make it last all day.
