Autumn Chopped Salad
Ingredients *6 to 8 cups chopped romaine lettuce *2 medium pears, chopped *1 cup dried cranberries *1 cup chopped pecans *8 slices thick-cut bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled *4 to 6 oz. feta cheese, crumbled *Poppy seed Salad Dressing (I like T. Marzetti) *Balsamic Vinaigrette (I like Newman’s Own Light Balsamic Vinaigrette)
Instructions *On a large platter, combine the lettuce, pears, cranberries, pecans, bacon and feta cheese. Drizzle generously with poppy seed dressing, followed by some of the balsamic vinaigrette. (I would estimate that I used about a cup of dressing: 70 percent poppy seed dressing and 30 percent balsamic vinaigrette) If you prefer your salad to have more dressing, feel free to experiment with the combination.
