Salad Croutons
salad croutons can be made easily and cheaply from scratch and they are 
far 
superior to the "cardboard" ones from the store. here's my "recipe". 
 
homemade salad croutons 
 
4 cup  stale bread, any type, cut into 3/4 inch cubes
  note use stale bread only. fresh bread doesn't work as well and it's
  a
  great way to use leftover bread)
1/3 cup  extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp  dried oregano
2 tsp  dried basil
1/2 tsp  garlic powder
  salt and pepper to taste
 
place bread cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet and lightly toast in 
a 350 degree oven, turning once. do not over brown or they will be too 
hard. they should be "barely" golden. transfer warm bread cubes to a large 
bowl. toss with olive oil and seasonings. notes: other seasonings can be 
substituted, according to your taste and what you're serving with the 
salad, soup, etc. also, they can be kept at room temperature in a zip bag 
for a couple of weeks. if you have day or two old bread and want to make 
the croutons at a later date, put the bread in the freezer until you need 
it. 
 
you will probably never buy "cardboard" croutons again!! 
enjoy!! misschef
