Tomato, Mozzarella & Crouton Salad

   

My favorite salad in the history of EVER. We had friends over one night and I had to make this salad because it is one of my go-to recipes for dinner party type situations. I’m not really classy enough for a dinner party but I can do a dinner party type situation alright. This salad is amazing because it’s so easy to make with just a few ingredients, and it’s simple to double or triple depending on how many people you are serving. Or how much the people you are serving love tomatoes, because if you love tomatoes you’ll want to eat a ton of this.
