How To Make Apple Cranberry Walnut Green Chopped Salad:
When starting out grab your lettuce, apples, cranberries, walnuts, bacon, and feta cheese and combine them all in your large mixing bowl.
Next, you will combine the balsamic vinaigrette with the poppy seed dressing in your smaller bowl.
NOTE: Be sure you are using balsamic vinaigrette dressing NOT plain balsamic vinegar.
Drizzle this over your salad right before you serve it.

The salad will get soggy if the dressing is left on any leftovers, so be sure to only add dressing to the salad you plan to eat right away.
Now simply serve and enjoy!
