Started cooking pasta, thinking about what I have on hand. Already had sliced olives already done up from a previous event. Wanting to use up cherry tomatoes and celery. Had just gotten Smoked Blue Cheese last week...'cause I craved it. Looked up a simple Italian dressing from another cookbook and presto done
