Low fat croutons

I love Caeser Salad and I have been trying to make a lower fat version. The Kraft CarbWell caeser dressing is just 1 point for 20mls and quite yummy. I have been grilling very lean bacon and making my own croutons. I use extra sharp grated parmesan and I don't have an egg on top and overall it isn't too high in points.

I use leftover bread for my croutons. Cut off crusts. Spray with olive oil spray. Rub on garlic or sprinkle with garlic flakes and sprinkle on some herbs and spices. Cut up into small squares and bake slowly until light brown and crispy. Croutons are yummy and can be frozen for later use. Nice on top of other salads or soups in the winter too.
