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!
