Updated on July 27, 2008

Looking for the perfect crunchy topping for your favorite salad? When you want something special to top off your green salad, try one of the delicious flavors of Perfect Croutons, made by Virginia's Live a Little Gourmet Foods. You're in for a real treat when you try these tasty gourmet croutons, especially if you're looking for a special salad topping.

According to Virginia Davis, Executive Chef and Founder of Virginia's Live a Little Gourmet Foods, the secret that makes her croutons "perfect" is the sourdough used to create them. Made in San Francisco, Perfect Croutons start with real Bay Area sourdough bread. Starting with perfect bread lays the groundwork for perfectly delicious croutons that make the perfect topping for any salad.

To transform sourdough chunks into Perfect Croutons, Virginia uses top quality olive oil, freshly minced garlic, Parmesan cheese, and kosher salt. The croutons are based and slow roasted, running them into crisp and crunchy croutons with a distinct flavor that true salad lovers will greatly appreciate. Virginia's Live a Little also makes ten delicious varieties of salad dressing, so you can enjoy a complete gourmet salad.

Perfect Croutons are certainly a perfect addition for salads, but they can also be used for many other purposes. Many people enjoy snacking on them straight from the package. They also make a terrific crust for baked fish or chicken, making it possible to enjoy lightly crunchy entrees without having to deal with all the fat and calories of frying. They're also a delicious topping for your favorite soups, including French onion and creamy tomato soup.

Residents of New York and San Francisco can find Perfect Croutons by Virginia's Live a Little Gourmet Foods at select grocery retailers throughout their cities. The rest of us can order online from the Virginia's Live a Little web site. Once you taste these delicious croutons, you'll be hooked!
