Dill Seasoned Croutons

img_1482

I’m always finding ways to spruce up a salad, and we usually grow our own lettuce which includes several different varieties. Unfortunately, this time of year we’re still buying it at the store, but I wanted to share our homemade crouton recipe with you. We’re using our Zesty Moose Willow of a dillo Dill Seasoning and our Chef’s Blend Olive Oil, which is very light and delicate; perfect for this application. Croutons are great as a salad topper and our version is a lot healthier, and it’s about one third of the price you would pay when buying them in the store. This is a great way to use up that day old bread!

Dill Seasoned Croutons

Cut the bread into ½ to 1 inch cubes. Place the bread pieces into a bowl and drizzle with the Zesty Moose Chef’s Blend Olive Oil over the pieces and mix until the oil has completely absorbed into the bread.

Next, generously season the bread pieces with the Zesty Moose Willow of a dillo Dill Seasoning.
