Chopped Salad

I think chopped salads are made for people that don't love salad.  They have a bit of lettuce, but there are so many other flavors and things going on that everyone finds something they like.  Add some chicken and bacon to the mix and you almost have an entire meal in a bowl.  I did a vegetarian option with a homemade honey dijon dressing this time because I needed to, but it is definitely better with the bacon!

Chopped Salad
adapted from here

1 head iceberg lettuce
1 head Romaine lettuce
1 red onion, minced
1 bunch green onion, thinly sliced
3 tomatoes, diced
1 pound ditalini pasta, cooked and cooled
1 cup gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional)
1 rotisserie chicken, meat remove and chopped (optional)
Honey Mustard Dressing or bottled vinaigrette

Wash and dry the lettuce and finely shop until the lettuce is about 1/2 to 1 inch pieces.  Combine everything in a large bowl and serve.  If you want to make this ahead of time, it is best to store the lettuce separate from the remaining ingredients and reserve the dressing until just before serving
