  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed or finely chopped
  • 0.67 cups extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt, to taste

Step 1: Assemble the Salad

  1. Cut the bacon into small pieces and fry until brown and crispy. Transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels to cool.
  2. Cook 2 eggs until hard-boiled, peel, and quarter them.
  3. Cut the Romaine lettuce into bite-sized pieces, rinse thoroughly, and spin it dry. Arrange the lettuce in a large serving dish.
  4. 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.
  5. Sprinkle finely chopped parsley over the salad for a fresh burst of flavor.

Step 2: Prepare the Salad Dressing

  1. In a Mason jar, combine balsamic vinegar, mustard, finely chopped garlic cloves, extra virgin olive oil, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Seal the jar and shake well to combine the dressing ingredients.

Step 3: Drizzle and Serve

  1. Just before serving, drizzle the dressing over the salad. You can either do this yourself or let your guests add their own dressing to taste.
