Mixed Greens With Garlic Croutons


  • Mesclun mixed greens for 2
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 6 tablespoons organic COLAVITA extra virgin olive oil
  • freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 slices of Elmore Mountain or other good French bread
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, coarsely grated


In small bowl, mix lemon juice, 4 tablespoons olive oil, and black pepper to taste. Cut bread into medium cubes. Spread in baking pan, and cover with 2 tablespoons olive oil and minced garlic. Bake for a few minutes at 300F, stirring occasionally, until croutons are lightly browned and still soft. Toss greens lightly with olive oil mixture, as needed. Add garlic croutons, and Parmesan.
