The other day I went in a restaurant that serves great food, however when my salad arrived... no croutons. WHAT? No croutons. Don't I still live in America? What's next, problems with health care?
Is it just me or is a salad without croutons like a tree with no leaves? Sure it's of some value, but for the most part, it's basically a home for bugs and dirt.
I prefer toasted almonds and crispy noodles(like the ones at the chinese resturaunts) over croutons. but I hear ya! I love nice crispy romaine and fresh from the garden baby carrots and cucumbers and blue cheese crumbles and bacon bits(real ones),thinly sliced toasted almonds or pecans,thin apple or pear slices and a hard boiled egg sliced and then slathered in blue chese dressing yummy yummy or balsalmic vinegrette.;)That's my idea of a yummy salad!!!
Yes, I like nuts on my salad too... I just got a salad from Whole Foods today. Guess what? No croutons! COME ON!!! It's a conspiracy.
Well Beth it wouldn't be at a health food store but there used to be a chain called Souper Salad that had every salad fixing imaginable but now everyone is on a health kick so even the finer resturaunts don't offer croutons even on their ceaser salads . You need to go to a local diner or denny's or applebees to find your croutons on salad.
They used to have a souper salad in Tucson where I lived. I miss that place.
But they do have croutons at Whole Foods... organic bread and all that nonsense.
For what ever purpose, maybe they knew about this thread... they didn't have them that day.
I don't know how much longer I can continue this rant though, that guy was right... even as a joke thread, it's shameful. lol
Oh I know it is the gluten free diet people that can't have bread or croutons and it's a big craze now to be gluten free and yes there are much worse things going on in the world other than not having croutons on your salad But most foodies understand!!!
I love whole foods. I shouldn't admit that... I work for a competitor... everyone who shops there looks they belong in an alternative rock band.... the cashiers have anti-smoking tattoos... the food costs like double what a regular store costs... even the make up has minerals in it. Really? Is that necessary? Im just using it to cover my hideousness, do I really need to pay extra for minerals when a paper bag would do the same job for free? But the food is so good... it's so healthy and so yummy. I should have gotten a job there, but I didn't want to get a tattoo.
Well I wouldn't think they would force you to have blue/pink hair or get a tattoo. Maybe you could even get lots of discounts if you tried to apply just a thought
Well if that's the only thing you have to worry about then life isn't so bad !
Yesterday I was reading about a 8 year old girl that lost a leg because of the conflict in Syria but no croutons on your salad that's an issue.
First world problems you're saying? Im pretty sure even 1st world ppl are cringing at this post.
I bet the bureaucrats at the UN had croutons on their salad in the lunch break between discussing Syria and their salaries this year!
Really? I never cared for croutons. Why ruin a nice salad by sprinkling it with chunks of hard stale bread? This is where we diverge in our opinions of important things.
Did you ask for them? They might not give them to you unless you ask.
I knew there was a way to make salads unhealthy but I forgot, lol.
p.s. always fry your croutes in Trans-Diesel for the best effects.
