Portly Cooks | Salad, Croutons and Dressing


In a bid to feel like i’m eating slightly healthily I made a salad. Well I say made, I put some leaves in a bowl.

To make my green bowl of leaves more appetising however I made some dressing and croutons to go on top, thus negating the health level of the salad.

  • Handful of salad leaves
  • Leftover foccacia or baguette about 100g
  • Large pinch ofPaprika
  • Seasoning
  • Garlic powder
  • 25ml kikkoman soy sauce
  • 25ml white wine vinegar
  • Glug of extra virgin olive oil

Start off making the croutons. Cut the bread into chunks and then in some oil fry until golden brown.  Once done out into a bowl or plastic bag and coat with the paprika and season well.

For the dressing in a jar, add the soy, garlic, vinegar and oil. Put the lid on ghe jar and give it a good shake.

Finally, put the croutons on the salad and pour over the dressing and you’ve got your salad.
