Ingredients

Simple Croutons

Emeril's ESSENCE Creole Seasoning

Directions

  1. To assemble the salad, place the greens, cheese, chopped thyme, and chopped rosemary in a large mixing bowl. Add the julienned sun-dried tomatoes. Drizzle the balsamic vinegar and extra- virgin olive oil over the salad, and season with salt, and pepper, to taste. Gently toss the ingredients to coat well.
  2. Divide the salad equally among 4 salad plates. Place 4 or 5 croutons on each plate, and top each salad with 1 tablespoon of the sprouts. Serve immediately.

Simple Croutons

Yield: About 6 cups
  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Combine the diced bread, olive oil, Creole seasoning, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl, and toss quickly to coat the croutons well. Transfer the croutons to a baking sheet and spread them out in a single layer. Bake, rotating the baking sheet front to back midway through, or until the bread cubes are crisp all the way through and golden, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove the bread from the oven and set aside to cool completely. Store the croutons in an airtight container at room temperature.
