Easy Homemade Croutons For Salad

You know I’m not a from-scratch girl.  More like a semi-homemade woman.  I take lots of shortcuts (in the kitchen and in life) but one thing I loathe is store-bought croutons.  No croutons out of a bag for me!  But you see, I love croutons.  So thankfully this is one of those easily solvable problems (Hashem should only send us easily solvable problems!  This is when you say scream “AMEN!”).

Semi-homemade croutons are a cinch.  Of course they are only semi-homemade if you are using store-bought bread.  If you use your (my) leftover Challah then you can really give yourself a sash and crown yourself domestic diva of the day.  Am looking for my tiara now.  While I search I leave you with two of my favorite salad/crouton recipes:

Creamy Wedge Salad with Homemade Croutons and Greek Salad with Herb Seasoned Croutons.

Wedge Salas with Homemade Croutons

Because a crouton is only as good as the salad you serve it with.

    This salad would be perfect for my lunch today. The creamy dressing is a favorite of mine. The croutons can only make it better.

  2. Gosh, I never thought of myself as a semi-homemade gal but you are right! If you use store bought bread, the croutons ARE semi homemade. That’s okay. They are so much better than packaged croutons.

  3. That salad looks amazing! I want to make it now!
