- 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 cup red onion, thinly sliced

- 2 garlic cloves, pressed or finely chopped
- 0.67 cups extra virgin olive oil

Step 1: Assemble the Salad
- Cut the bacon into small pieces and fry until brown and crispy. Transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels to cool.
- Cook 2 eggs until hard-boiled, peel, and quarter them.
- Cut the Romaine lettuce into bite-sized pieces, rinse thoroughly, and spin it dry. Arrange the lettuce in a large serving dish.
- Arrange the remaining salad ingredients in rows on top of the lettuce—chicken, hard-boiled eggs, avocado slices, halved cherry tomatoes, thinly sliced red onions, crumbled feta cheese, and crispy bacon.
- Sprinkle finely chopped parsley over the salad for a fresh burst of flavor.
Step 2: Prepare the Salad Dressing
- In a Mason jar, combine balsamic vinegar, mustard, finely chopped garlic cloves, extra virgin olive oil, salt, and black pepper.
- Seal the jar and shake well to combine the dressing ingredients.
