Remove the rind from the Castelmagno and cut it into thin shavings to keep on one side. Add any crumbs of Castelmagno to the sauce, mix in well and keep in the fridge until serving. To serve: form a bed of salad on the plates and distribute the croutons over them. Add the shavings of Castelmagno and complete with the sauce.
