5 Awesomely Fresh, Fast Chopped Salads

Filled with intensely flavorful ingredients like bacon, avocado, fresh salmon, and fruits like apples, pears and cranberries, these chopped salads are easy to make-- and eat!

It's no mystery why chopped salads are a huge trend lately: Slicing and dicing up all the salad ingredients makes for forkfuls that are easier to eat than those unwieldy pieces of lettuce you normally get. Plus, a chopped salad creates nicely balanced flavors in every bite -- and a perfect showcase for a fantastic dressing. These five salads are just the thing for any season.
