    Stale bagels make a nice firm crouton, cubed and dried first in the oven at 375 for 10 minutes until dry but not yet brown. Then Iremove, place them in a large bowl and spray with olive oil, tossing until all sides are lightly coated, add seasonings including garlic and onion powder, and dried parsley. I then spread them out on the same cookie sheet and toast lightly for another 5-10 minutes. Leave out on the tray for an hour or so to cool and dissipate any moisture until placing in a paper bag, then covered in a plastic bag to store.

    I adore this recipe! I've made it so many times, I know it by heart. The cayenne on the crutons really give this salad a nice kick. I like spicy, so I up the garlic. I also like tangy, so I add more lemon. You can adjust any part of the recipe depending on your preferences. It's great!

    I found this recipe to be way too salty and way too peppery. If I were to do it again, I would cut both in half. Both ingredients just overwhelmed the dressing, unfortunately.

    Skip the salt in the dressing if using anchovy paste.

    My secret is a raw kale salad with the addition of all synergistic ingredients: sliced red and yellow peppers, sliced raw mushrooms, matchstick carrots, capers, and 1-2 Brazil nuts. I don't bother with the croutons and I pretty much keep to the Caesar dressing recipe exactly. When I double it (what I usually do) I use a whole egg and keep the salt and pepper at one teaspoon. It is beyond amazing! I lost 20 lbs. and haven't exercised yet.
