Recipe Preparation
  1. In a medium skillet, over medium high heat, melt butter. Butter will foam up, then subside. Watch for brown specks on the bottom of the pan, and whisk every minute or so until butter begins to brown, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add breadcrumbs and salt, toss to coat in butter. Toss every minute until breadcrumbs are golden brown, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer breadcrumbs into a bowl to cool.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk honey, apple cider vinegar and olive oil.
  4. Pour honey vinaigrette over cherry tomatoes and Baby Romaine. Sprinkle bread crumbs over the salad.
