Pour 6 tablespoons French dressing (vinaigrette) into the bowl and mix well.

Add the croutons while they are still hot and mix once more. The salad is ready.
Remarks
As in any recipe with croutons, these are best if they are at least still warm when served, so add them at the last minute.

If you don't have any clarified butter, you can use a little oil, but it will not taste as good.

The quantity of vinaigrette is only for guidance; use as much as you like.
Keeping
Only an hour or two after adding the vinaigrette.
