It’s simple little things that are EZ and basic that can take your dishes to the next level. There’s just no need to buy croutons~~I mean how many times have you had stale bread~~and, why wait until the holidays to use it for dressing!
These olive oil cilantro croutons are going to be perfect on so many things~~from soups and chili to salads and, yes, even yogurt! I mean that is a hot new food trend for 2015~~savory yogurt (haven’t we always loved savory with cottage cheese?), so let’s get ahead of the game just a tad and groove on! xoxo ~peace~ ally
