Most people who sit at a desk for their job acquire items in their drawer such as paper clips, pens or post it notes. I have those things too but always keep a whisk, olive oil and balsamic vinegar in my drawer. I like fresh salad dressing and I find it comes in handy. Today is a great example.
For lunch my co-worker brought in chicken she cooked at home and some pita pockets. I had brought some mixed greens, a handful of olives, a small tomato, 1/2 cucumber, about a quarter cup of feta cheese and a tablespoon of red onion.
We combined all of the ingredients (dicing up the cucumber and tomato), including the chicken. I whisked 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar with salt and pepper and slowly added 3/4 cup of olive oil. Then added a little honey. We tossed all of the ingredients in the dressing and stuffed it in the pita pockets.

It was flavorful and easy to make. We wrapped our pita pockets in napkins and sat outside to enjoy the sunshine.
