1 tablespoon cornmeal
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 pound extra-firm light tofu, drained and cut into 1/2-inch cubes

Place lettuce in a bowl. Drizzle 3/4 cup Caesar Dressing over lettuce; toss well. Spoon 2 cups salad into each of 5 bowls; top each with 1/2 cup tofu croutons. Serve immediately.

Note: Store remaining dressing in an airtight container in refrigerator for 1 week. Serve with salad greens.
