We've taken the flavours of a classic Italian antipasto and made it into a delicious meal for the whole family! Croutons are coated in garlic oil and pan-fried, then tossed with spring mix, juicy tomatoes and fresh basil. It's all topped with creamy Parmesan and a final drizzle of balsamic glaze.

Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Halve cucumber lengthwise, then cut into 1/4-inch half-moons. Cut tomatoes into 1/4-inch pieces. Thinly slice basil. Cut ciabatta into 1-inch pieces.
Pat chicken dry with paper towels, then cut into 1-inch pieces. Add chicken, half the Italian Seasoning and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Set aside.
Add ciabatta, half the garlic puree, remaining Italian Seasoning and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to another medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil then ciabatta. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown on all sides, 3-4 min.
