Prepare the salad base
In a large salad bowl, combine the mixed greens, diced tomatoes, thinly sliced red onion, and grated carrots.

Dress the salad
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper to create a simple vinaigrette. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss well to coat all the ingredients evenly.

STEP 3

Add the croutons
Just before serving, add the La Mole Crutò croutons to the salad. This will ensure they retain their crunch and don’t get soggy from the dressing.

STEP 4

Optional additions
For a touch of creaminess and additional flavor, sprinkle crumbled feta or goat cheese over the top. Tear a handful of fresh basil leaves and scatter them over the salad for an extra burst of freshness.

STEP 5

Serve
Toss the salad gently once more to combine all the elements. Serve immediately as a refreshing and crunchy side dish or as a light main course.
