    Autumn Chopped Salad Recipe 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.

Portillo’s Chopped Salad. This is very close to the real thing! I added two grilled chicken breasts like it has at Portillo's and did half balsamic and half seasoned rice vinegar so the salad dressing tasted more like the real thing.
