One of most asked about menu items is our Cornbread Croutons mostly because eaters are just looking for a way to switch up ordinary salad toppings. If you are looking to jazz up your daily salad, we have a few ideas for you. If you want to make your own version of our Cornbread Croutons at home, like in our Canyon Salad, it’s quite easy. Just buy or bake some cornbread, cut into cubes, and place in a 400 degree oven for about ten minutes. Our “Not So Simple House Salad” also has unique toppings including spiced pecans. Topping your salad with any kind of nut: chestnuts, almonds, and walnuts are some our favorites.
Some other options for dressing up your salad include topping it with quinoa, couscous, and barley for an extra dose of fiber that will keep you full. Also, topping your salad of choice with sunflower seeds can add a salty flavor without the added sodium of regular table salt. Some other favorites include edamame for added vitamins and water chestnuts and dry chow mein noodles for crunch.
