Creative Croutons

My family loves Ceasar salad. My four-year-old gobbles it up, so we make it at least once a week to go with evening meals. I was getting bored with the traditional take, so I decided to get a little creative with the croutons. Instead of pouring pre-made croutons out of a bag, which is what I normally do, I made these out of tortillas. They’re so fun and you can either crumble them into the salad or eat them like crackers.

First, take a whole wheat flour tortilla and baste each side with olive oil.

Season one side with kosher salt. Chop fresh rosemary and sprinkle it all over the tortilla. Cut it into triangles, place them on a baking sheet, and bake them at 350 degrees for about  7 minutes. They will be golden brown on the edges and starting to curl up a bit.

Serve them however you’d like with your salad. Or, use them with a dip. They have a fantastic texture…I promise your family will love this homemade version of croutons, chips, crackers…whatever you want to call them. Enjoy!
