Bitter Greens Caesar Salad

The secret to this outrageously delicious Caesar is the homemade croutons. There’s a golden rule when it comes to baguette: toast it with a healthy drizzle of olive oil, and it’ll turn out delicious every time (unless you burn it). Now, imagine what happens when you tear up baguette into small craggy pieces, which give that olive oil extra surface area to sink into? That’s right, you get addictive croutons that are somehow crunchy and melt in your mouth at the same time. Now onto the actual salad part of the dish, made with three crunchy chopped greens including mustard greens, kale, and romaine. A bit of minced anchovy adds that unmistakable “Caesar” flavor.
