7-8 Tablespoons Olive Oil, divided
1/4 Cup Minced Fresh Cilantro
1/4 Cup Orange Juice
1/4 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Honey

To Make Croutons: Cut Swirl Bread into cubes, toss with 1-2 tbsp. olive oil, and bake in a 350 degree F oven until crispy.
To Make Salad Dressing: Whisk together 6 tbsp. olive oil, cilantro, orange juice, balsamic vinegar, honey, garlic, salt, and sriracha in a medium bowl, toss apples with 1/4 cup dressing. Let stand 10 minutes.
