Fall Chopped Salad – This yummy main dish salad makes a delicious lunch or dinner all season long. (Gluten Free & Paleo)



For the Fall Chopped Salad:

  • 56 oz (68 cups) mixed greens
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 1 pear, diced
  • 46 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (I like uncured bacon)
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries or cherries (I like unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup pecans (I like to toast mine)
  • 34 Tbsp. finely minced red onion (or green onion)

For the Honey Mustard Dressing:

  • 3 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard
  • 3 Tbsp. Honey
  • 2 Tbsp. Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 tsp. salt (or, to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper (or, to taste)


To Make the Fall Chopped Salad:

  1. In your largest mixing bowl, combine greens, apple, pear, bacon, cranberries, pecans, and onion.
  2. Add 3-4 Tbsp dressing and toss to coat, adding more dressing as necessary/desired.

To Make the Dressing:

  1. Combine mustard, honey, and mayonnaise in a small jar or bowl. Whisk to combine. (This will make more than you need for the salad). Dressing will keep 1 week in the refrigerator.
