What Makes This Pinworthy?

This salad is absolute perfection with the crispy bacon, homemade croutons, and balsamic flavors. While this salad can be easily made by even the most amateur chef in the comfort of their own kitchen, this salad looks and tastes like it came from the salad portion of the menu of any high end restaurant. Try it, and we can guarantee you will love it as much as we did.

Looking to impress some guests? Look no further- this salad is impressive not only in taste but also in appearance. The crispy greens look beautiful when topped with fresh tomatoes, bacon, and the large homemade croutons. The best part is that this salad doesn’t take long to make- yet the final product looks as if a lot of time and effort was spent on it.

This salad is almost hearty enough to be eaten on its own, but it also pairs well with steak, fish, pork, and more. While this crisp salad would be perfect during the warm summer months, it is delicious enough to be enjoyed all year long.
