4 key components to this beauty.

1: we’ve got the homemade croutons – they’ll rock your world. Probably best to make a double batch so you can snack on some before assembly.

2: The grilled chicken is perfectly seasoned and marinated so it’s going to be delish. You could also do the same marinade for steak or salmon and grill to cook. Easy peasy.

3: The vinaigrette – really easy and let’s all the flavors shine.

4: It’s still peak tomato season so grab the best looking tomatoes you can find from the market and then get into it! You’ll need some cucumbers to give everything a burst of freshness and olives because we all love a castelvetrano moment!! And that’s all there is too it! The ingredient list looks long… but I promise it’s all easy and totally worth it!
