My favorite way to make croutons for a greek salad or for a ceasar salad. They will keep in an airtight container for 3-4 days in your pantry. We love these! Also, good for brushing on pita bread before toasting to make pita chips! I found this in a food magazine and altered it to make it more to our taste, but I cannot remember which magazine!

I thought the taste was more Italian due to the basil. We enjoyed it as a snack,but next time I'll try it in a salad. Made for zwt6.
