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)
