Here is another great salad for you to try. 

6 to 8 cups chopped romaine lettuce
2-3 pears, chopped
1 c dried cranberries
1 c chopped pecans or walnuts
8 slices bacon, crisp-cooked an crumbled
4 to 6 oz feta cheese, or blue cheese, or Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
Poppy seed dressing, homemade or commercially prepared

In a large salad bowl, combine lettuce, pears, cranberries, pecans, bacon and cheese. Drizzle generously with poppy seed dressing and then with balsamic vinaigrette. Use about a   70/30 ratio with the dressing. Toss all ingredients together.
