I rarely put croutons in salad anymore, but sometimes I'd like something crunchy in there. Nuts can do this somewhat, but it's a different sort of crunch. I do, however, like cheese in my salad.
Frico is a way to have the best of both worlds. It's a homemade parmesan cracker that's easy to whip up in under 15 minutes. Be careful with them--they are very delicate.
