Sprinkle with salt and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Store in the refrigerator until it’s time to finish the dish.

Half an hour before serving, strain the tomato juice. To do this, put a sieve on the bowl and a clean towel on the sieve. Pour the water on the canvas and let it drain.

After thirty minutes, close the cloth tightly and squeeze out the remaining water. Ignore the solids.

Transfer the croutons to a baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes until the croutons are crunchy. Reserve

Mass salad
