Savory Granola Salad Topping Recipe Recipe

Granola topping is a healthier, more nutritious alternative to croutons for salads. I incorporated as many, if not more, flavors as I would for the bread, using lemon thyme, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, Pecorino cheese, Italian parsley, spices and extra-virgin olive oil. After the baked savory granola had cooled to room temperature, I mixed arugula with fresh cherries as an natural sweetener, drizzled a simple lemon vinaigrette and sprinkled the salad with the crunchy savory Pecorino granola topping.

I used boxed granola mix, called Granola Basics. It’s made by our friend Sarah from "Nuts About Granola" (it's their 5th anniversary!). Ever since she sent me my first box, I've wanted to explore and develop a savory version. And if you have the opportunity to purchase this awesome product, you'll see on the back of the box one of my recipes with a photo taken by me!

Granola, Berry & Yogurt Parfait Recipe Recipe

With the long weekend and an extra week off of school, the big girls have been staing up late and lazing it up in bed until 11am-ish the last few days. I decided they weren’t spoiled enough, so I brought them breakfast in bed. Baby Aria and I prepared the parfaits mixing fresh berries, kiwi, granola and honey-flavored yogurt. Simple, sweet, healthy and filling.

If you feel the urge to make freshly baked granola at home, my friend Sarah at Nuts About Granola offers a "bake-it-yourself" granola kit (it costs only $3.99). It has been widely available in supermarkets on the East Coast and is also available online. I’m a huge fan of their product, and you'll actually find my recipe on the back of the box! Give it a try and you’ll be as Nuts about Granola as I am.

Today's post is about one of my favorite companies, California Lavash, where the ever wonderful Lilea works. California Lavash makes healthy, preservative free breads. Their lavash works amazingly well for pizzas, desserts, and in the case of this recipe, as a breakfast wrap. Anyway, if --like me-- you're stressed in the mornings because of the holiday season, here's a recipe that'll make you look like a culinary whiz without taking eons to prepare. 

Fresh fruits of your choice are layered with plain yogurt, a drizzle of honey and crunchy granola, and the whole thing is wrapped in lavash bread. It's super easy to roll out a bunch of these for all the hungry little hands in your house.

Our friend Sarah from Nuts About Granola has launched her first-ever box-mixed granola, called Granola Basics. The concept is brilliant and a lot of fun. Start with Granola Basics, then add a sweetener such as honey, agave or maple syrup. Finish with a few tasty mix-ins such as nuts, dried fruit or chocolate and you’re done.

Of course, I wanted to test it out! In my opinion, nothing can go wrong when you mix exquisite ingredients such as Guittard chocolate, fresh coconut shavings, Hawaiian ginger syrup, candied ginger and macadamia nuts, so that’s exactly what I did. It’s not quite a trip to the Aloha State, but very satisfying nonetheless.

If you want to give this delicious one-of-kind product a try, you can participate in this week's giveaway for one box of Granola Basics. Can’t wait? Buy it online, or if you live in the Baltimore area, you can find it on Whole Foods Harbor East shelves.
