1/2 lb. bacon
Italian style croutons
1 small container cherry tomatoes
shredded cheese (your choice of type)
balsamic vinegar salad dressing OR Italian salad dressing
Fry the bacon, then place it on paper towels to soak up extra grease. Wash the romaine lettuce, then tear it into pieces and place it in a large salad bowl. Crumble the bacon and spread the bacon pieces over the lettuce. Slice the cherry tomatoes in half and spread them over the top of the bacon. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top. Spread Italian croutons over the top. Drizzle the salad dressing over the top and toss until mixed. Serve immediately.
