"I just wanted to say thanks for the awesome website. A friend sent me your website and I was like a kid in a candy store seeing your wide variety of spices, salts, herbs, etc. Being someone that's not extremely well versed in what I'd consider 'exotic' ingredients, it was an absolute pleasure to see the products' history, uses, taste and general information. Just wanted to voice my appreciation. Thanks so much!"
For croutons: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut baguette into ½-inch cubes and toss with oil and San Andreas. Arrange cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 10 to 20 min. until golden brown and crispy. Remove from oven and set aside. For dressing: Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. For salad: Combine ingredients together in a large bowl, toss with ¼ to ½ cup dressing and stir in 1 cup croutons.
You’ll have leftover dressing and croutons to use on top of your other favorite salads. Dressing keeps for a couple of days in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Croutons keep for a week in an airtight container in the pantry. Tip: Turn dressing into a chip or veggie dip by using ½ cup instead of 1 cup water.
