>> Tuesday, February 3, 2009 – Salads
Salads are very healthy to eat with every meal, So I used to make salads with dinner atleast 4 to 5 days a week. This salad is bit filling too which we can have it with light dinner. Croutons which i made is olive artisan sourdough bread which is day old bread. Artisan bread are hard enough to with stand its texture even if we add dressing to it. This is easy to make with the simple dressing.
Any bread or artisan bread - cut as cubes
Lettuce - chopped
Cherry tomato - few halved
Cucumber - cubed
Parsely or cilantro - few for garnishing
Olive oil - 3 tbsp
Lemon - 1 tbsp
Garlic - Finely chopped or greated
Salt and pepper
Whisk everything together and keep aside.
Crisp the bread in 400 c oven by spraying some olive oil, salt and pepper . Now in the big bowl add all the vegetables and bread. Add the dressing mixture toss well and garnish with parsely or cilantro, serve chill.
We can do this even with store bought croutons.
