When you Bring A Leftover Salad to Work for Lunch

When I retrieved my salad out of the fridge at work I got a “So that’s your salad? Everyone has been asking who’s salad that is, it looks good!”  It made me a little nervous, and it somewhat amazed me how closely people investigate the food that you bring to work.  I guess I just don’t ever pay any mind to what is in the fridge I just try to find a little spot for what I’ve brought.

After thinking about Salads ALL DAY yesterday I picked up a few things to start my tour of summer salads.  Spinach, Strawberries, Mushrooms, Almonds.  I already had the Romaine Lettuce, Cheese and Blueberries on hand.  I mixed it all together and this is what it looked like:

Summer Salad

I thought I had a vinegerette dressing in the pantry, but after a desperate search I turned up nothing and googled a recipe.  I actually had all the staples on hand: Olive Oil, Balsamic Vinegar, Garlic Clove, Honey, Dijon Mustard, Salt and Pepper and I even found a salad dressing jar hidden at the back of the cupboard that had been a wedding present that was perfect for mixing it in.

When I brought what was left of the salad in for lunch today I added the leftover peas and kidney beans from dinner on Monday.  I meant to add the hard boiled eggs I had made last night too, but sadly I forgot.  To everyone at work I say YES, it was as good as it looked. . . but please bring your own and quit staring so intently at my food,  it makes me uncomfortable.
