This combination I use either on croutons or as a salad dressing

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add lemon zest, garlic powder, pepper,oreagno, parmesan cheese, parsley season salt, olive oil, fresh lemon juice mix with stick blender or whisk together well.
  2. In large bowl mix bread cubes with caeser dressing and mix well.
  3. Bake on two large cookie sheets 350 for about 15-20 minutes or until toasted. Stirring every 5 minutes. Ovens may vary a bit so watch closely.
  4. Cool compelety and store in air tight container.
  5. I buy day old bread and put in freezer then when Im ready to make crutons I take the bread out for about an hour then cube it, makes it a little easier, but make sure they are to room temp and soft before adding the ceasar mix.
  6. Save the crusts and toast in oven and make bread crumbs.
  7. When Im making caesar salad I use this recipe and add 2-3 anchovy fillets. A nice change from creamy dressings.

Yummy croutons that we enjoyed on our caesar salad. In fact, they enhanced the salad immensely. I left the crusts on the bread slices I used and thought that added to the pleasure of eating the croutons, having a little variety in texture. Thanks for posting this recipe!

I made this for my Ceasar Salad over the weekend. OMG, this is better than store bought. Everyone kept asking me what brand\kind they were ;) I halved the recipe and still had leftovers. My kids were munching on them the next day for a snack. They had a wonderful flavor... I will definitely make these again. What great raves. I took your suggestion with the bread and froze it first. Nice Tip. Worked perfect. Thanks for sharing another awesome recipe. (PAC 2007)
