Put all of the salad ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
For the dressing, put all the dressing ingredients in a bowl and combine thoroughly to form a smooth dressing.
For the croutons, heat the oil in a frying pan and, when hot, add the bread cubes. Cook 2-3 minutes, or until golden.
Add the croutons to the salad bowl and drizzle over the salad dressing.
