1
Heat oven to 375°F.
2
Place bread cubes onto baking sheet. Drizzle 2 tablespoons melted butter over bread; season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Toss to coat. Bake 12-14 minutes or until outsides are crisp and golden brown, flipping halfway through. Set aside.

Place chopped lettuce onto platter. Arrange all remaining ingredients except salad dressing in rows over lettuce. Serve with salad dressing.

Tips

Tailor this recipe by subbing in any of your favorite veggies. Shredded carrots and sliced cucumbers are two colorful possibilities. Grape or cherry tomatoes can be used instead of the chopped whole tomato.
