My Favorite Salad

This is my all-time favorite salad. It's a really, really hard recipe, too. Here's what you do:
You go to Trader Joe's (or any grocery) and buy:
1 bag salad (I like baby greens)
1 container crumbled gorgonzola or other yummy blue cheese
1 package toasted, candied pecans
1 package dried cranberries
1 bottle raspberry dressing (perhaps a vinaigrette)
Get a big bowl or plate. Put a few handfuls of greens on the plate. Generously sprinkle blue cheese and cranberries over the top. Get out a cutting board and a sharp knife. Chop up the nuts into smaller chunks (not too small). Sprinkle these (again, be generous!) over the top. Either serve dressing on the side, or toss with dressing (my usual choice). Serve.
Oh, what's so hard about the recipe? The hard part is not stuffing the salad into your mouth in gigantic bites because it's so good you just can't believe it.
