A good salad is all about achieving that perfect balance of flavours and textures, and nothing adds crunch quite like a crouton. You can purchase pre-made croutons pretty easily, but it you want a truly great cube of golden, crispy, just slightly chewy bread, you should make them yourself. They're also dead easy to make.

Cacio e pepe (meaning "cheese and pepper") is the simplest of dishes where pasta is tossed with Pecorino Romano, pepper and good olive oil, but there's no reason pasta should have all the fun. By treating croutons with these delicious ingredients, you get a salad that feels more substantial and tastes a bit more decadent.
