Tomato & Cucumber Salad

Serves 8

2 cups salad greens, chopped
2 large tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 cucumber, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 lb. fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 baguette, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
Olive oil, as needed
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/3 cup champagne vinegar
1 Tbsp. honey
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
2/3 cup olive oil
1 Tbsp. fresh chives, chopped
1 Tbsp. fresh dill, chopped

To make croutons, add enough olive oil to coat the bottom of a large pan over medium-high heat. Add bread cubes and season with salt and pepper. Toast bread cubes until golden brown and crisp on all sides. Set aside.

To make dressing, combine vinegar, honey, mustard, and herbs in a bowl. While whisking vigorously, slowly pour in olive oil. Season mixture, to taste, with salt, pepper and additional honey, vinegar or oil.

Arrange salad greens on each of 8 individual plates. Top with tomatoes, cucumber and mozzarella. Add croutons. Top with dressing and serve.
