Autumn Chopped Salad

I feel like a broken record saying this, but are you using Pinterest yet?  It's such a great place to get ideas.  Anyway, I found this recipe for Autumn Chopped Salad there, but I changed the recipe quite a bit.   I know it's not Autumn yet, but school started today around here, so it feels like it!

Autumn Chopped Salad

1 large head of romaine lettuce, washed and chopped
2 medium pears, chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (I did this in the microwave)
4 oz. crumbled feta cheese
Rotisserie chicken, chopped white meat
Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

Toss salad with vinaigrette right before serving.

Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4-1/2 cup olive oil
Combine ingredients in a small jar with a lid and shake it up.
