This salad can be made year round, but I truly love making this during the summer with fresh tomatoes and basil from the garden.

Bacon Onion Croutons
I hate to admit it but I used to use bulk pre-made croutons at the first restaurant I was the chef at. I resisted for so long making my own. At the time it was more an issue of time then quality. That all changed the day I made croutons from scratch for a private party. I sneaked a fresh crouton of the pan and popped it my mouth and never again did I use pre-made croutons.
