Italian-Style Croutons

Italian-Style Croutons Recipe

Lately, we have been grilling chicken and having it in a salad for dinners over the summer. We harvest lettuce from our garden, grill up some chicken, and add a few things to the salad. Justin and I like different types of salads, but one thing we agree on is Italian-Style Croutons, so I decided to try my hand at making some homemade. It was a lot cheaper, and we could make them exactly as we want. I made my homemade bread and used that to make a large batch of croutons, covered with seasonings.
