   papery skin from the garlic head and slice 1/2 inch

   baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, or until croutons
   are crisp and golden. Remove the croutons and set

   chives or scallion greens, oregano and the reserved
   croutons. Pour the garlic dressing over and toss until
   well coated. Season with salt and pepper. Serve
   immediately on a bed of chicory.  Serves 2.
