Company Salad

Sorry no picture for this one, I hope to update this with a picture after the holidays! This recipe is actually all about the dressing, the salad can be anything you like, although I will tell you what I almost always use. My sister in law gave me this recipe and she said her mother always made this dressing when they had company so it was called "Company Salad". Now, every year at my husband's Christmas party, his employees request this salad, so it has become our own "Company Salad"!
Company Salad Dressing
3 to one oil/lemon juice
(I usually make 3/4 cup oil/1/4 cup lemon juice)
1 tsp mint
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp parsley
pepper to taste
Mix together.
I toss this with red leaf/green leaf lettuce or Romaine mix with lettuce added.
Top with large black olives and croutons. (I use homemade bread crumbs/croutons)
Homemade Croutons
12-15 slices bread (whole wheat is best but it doesn't matter)
1/2 cup butter (or more)
garlic salt
Remove crusts, brush both sides with butter, sprinkle with garlic salt and cut into chunks.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
