Chopped Salad...like Portillos

We have this AWESOME restaurant here that has an AMAZING chopped salad. It's one of my favorite things in Chicago. We {meaning Shirlene Duncan & Gerrie Miller} made up the recipe to make it at home...it's not quite the same, but close enough considering that it's $7.50 each at the restaurant. {and worth every penny}.

for your eating pleasure {and I guarantee you will love it}....


2 Heads of Romain Lettuce - chopped up pretty small
1 Cup Gorgonzola Cheese {you can use Feta or Blue Cheese if the Gorgonzola is to strong}
1/2 C chopped up bacon {or bacon bits}
1/4 C chopped green onions
1 1/2 - 2 C Chopped Chicken
1/2-1 C Chopped, seeded tomatoes
2 C Cooked Ditilina Pasta {very small pasta, it's a little hard to find}

Mix all ingredients together.

Dressing is 1/2 C Ranch Dressing and 1/2 C Honey Mustard Dressing mixed together. {you can make more or less, just mix equal parts}
