I found this beautiful Fall Chopped Salad recipe a few weeks ago and knew it would be a crowd pleaser! Plus it’s so colorful and fun looking that it will go great with just about any dish!
I modified the recipe a bit from the original to fit our family better, and it was just as yummy and I knew my kiddos would eat it.
- 4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
- 1 medium pear, peeled and chopped
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans (You can also use cashews in this!)
- 1/2 cup bacon bits
- 2 T. crumbled feta cheese (I will omit this next time as my kiddos weren’t that fond of the feta)
- Poppy Seed Salad Dressing
- Balsamic Vinaigrette (Newman’s Own Light Balsamic Vinaigrette)
Chop lettuce, pears, and nuts well. Combine all ingredients in a large salad bowl. Drizzle with poppy seed salad dressing and balsamic vinaigrette. I used about 1/4 c. vinaigrette, and 1/2 c. Poppy Seed Dressing. (Serves approx. 6 people…a few adults and a some little guys too.)
Serve with your favorite meal!
Hope you enjoy this colorful fall salad.
Psst…you can eat it in the anytime, not just fall! ;o)
