I've been wanting something a little lighter lately and I came across a Chopped Salad on Pinterest. I added my own spin ate 3 platefuls and still wanted more.
I didn't do a photo tutorial because I figured it's a salad and you are a smart cookie, you can figure it out. It looks so pretty in the end and you can play with it a bit adding your favourite fruit and veggies.

All ingredient measurements are approximate, add more or less as you like.
6 cups of romaine lettuce cut or torn into small squares
2 cups of baby spinach cut or torn into small squares

2 pears, peel on (I had borsc on hand) cut into small cubes
1/2 cup - 1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup of feta cheese, crumbled.
4 slices of cook bacon cut into small pieces (I use scissors)
I experimented with the following dressings:
Balsamic Vinaigrette, I used Renee's Gourmet brand
Poppy Seed dressing, I used Renee's Gourmet brand, light
Rasberry dressing, I used Ravin' Rasberry, Renee's Gourmet brand
Pure Kraft Refrigerated Creamy Balsamic Dressing
Toss all ingredients together in a bowl and serve. Adding dressing to individual plates.
Next time I may add some finely sliced red onion and maybe some candid almonds or walnuts. I can't wait!
