How to Prepare Caesar Salad
How to prepare the salad:
- Preheat the oven to 375° F.
- Cut each slice of bread into 16 to 20 cubes. Put the bread cubes in a bowl, drizzle with the butter, and toss to coat evenly. Spread the cubes in a single layer in a shallow baking pan and bake for about 10 minutes or until the croutons are golden brown. Shake the pan once or twice to encourage even browning.
- Transfer the croutons to a medium mixing bowl. Sprinkle one tablespoon of the Parmesan and the garlic powder over the croutons. Gently toss. Set aside at room temperature.
- Cut the lettuce into large bite-size pieces and transfer to a large salad or mixing bowl. Toss with the Caesar Dressing. Sprinkle the remaining Parmesan over the salad and add the croutons.
