punch it up.

Homemade croutons are simple, and a million times better than anything you can get out of a box.  
Start with a nice bread, cut into squares (or such), drizzle with a quality olive oil, & season.  Some people saute, but I like to bake at 325*.  Keep an eye, toss every once in a while, and there you have it.
BUT, want to punch up a simple salad?  I love to make a robust garlic & rosemary version, and the batch pictured above are seasoned with curry spices.  Easy peasy.
