Autumn Chopped Salad


You know that point you reach a few days after Thanksgiving – the one where you say “enough” and you just can’t eat one more Thanksgiving leftover?  It usually happens  around Saturday night or Sunday {or maybe when you can’t zip your jeans}.  Here is the perfect solution to the “no more leftovers syndrome”!  This autumn chop salad is so easy {because we’ve done enough cooking this week} and is full of fresh and delicious tastes – pears, pecans, cranberries, bacon . . . perfect for this next weekend.  So when you go to the store again {how many times have you gone to the store in the last few days??}, pick up the ingredients for this delicious and light “after feast” meal.  You’ll be so glad you did!
