Virginia's Live A Little Introduces Crostini

Virginia’s Live A Little, the San Francisco Bay Area-based company specializing in gourmet salad dressings and croutons, adds a unique crunch to its line-up of homemade recipes with three new varieties of Crostini.

In Italian, “crostini” means “little toasts,” and that’s a great description for Virginia’s new Crostini, available in Garlic and Herb, Blue Cheese and Honey, and Roasted Tomato These crispy rounds are made by rubbing sliced Italian baguette with fresh garlic, tangy cheeses and other goodies, then baked to a golden brown. Virginia’s Crostini makes for a fabulous bed for cheese, fruit or vegetable tapenade. They are also great for snacking. Try them right out of the bag, or for true indulgence, dip into Virginia’s Very Blue Cheese dressing.

“I’ve learned from years as a professional chef that fine cooking is as much about managing time as managing flavor,” said Virginia’s Executive Chef, President and Founder Virginia Davis. “With my Crostini and all of Virginia’s Live a Little Gourmet Foods, I want to offer the finest ingredients, years of experience, and a little extra time to enjoy some of my favorite foods exactly as I serve them in my own home.”

Live A Little was launched with the mouth-watering garlicky croutons that friends and family couldn’t get enough of. Soon after Perfect Croutons were put on the market, the fledgling company expanded into making premium fresh chilled salad dressings, launching Real Caesar Dressing, the company’s first, in 1997.

Virginia Davis has continuously expanded her offerings and currently produces two gourmet product lines —Perfect Croutons and Fresh Dressings. She offers a line of ten fabulous, flavorful dressings, including Real Caesar, Lemon Caesar, Thousand Island, Very Blue Cheese, Naturally Blue Cheese, Ginger Sesame, Bold Balsamic Vinaigrette, Red Wine Vinaigrette, Champagne Wine Vinaigrette, and Mango Lime dressings.
