Chop the lettuce into bite-size pieces and rinse well. Drain the water to ensure the lettuce is completely dry.
Chop the pears and pecans into bite-size pieces. Crumble the Havarti cheese.
In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, pears, dried cranberries, pecans, bacon and Havarti cheese.
Mix the Poppy Seed and Balsamic dressing together and drizzle onto the salad. Toss the salad and serve immediately.
