I like to eat Caesar salad, it is quite expensive to take a plate of Caesar salad at the restaurant..I went through my cookbook and realized that it is so easy to make it at home..But before i can make Caesar salad, first i need to prepare Croutons (small piece of sauteed or rebake bread)..
There are two method to make croutons, either pan fry or oven bake..I tried both ways, and we prefer oven baked croutons, more crunchy than pan fry version..and easy to prepare..
My son taking this crouton like taking potato chips, non-stop eating!!!
I prepared this Bento and bring it to school for kids, Caesar salad and Croquette (will share recipe later).
