Savoury granola is such a handy addition to your pantry. Let’s face it; we all want to eat more salad and what happens when all you have in the fridge is a couple of leaves? It’s not the most appetizing thought! But when you sprinkle some of this granola on top, suddenly the prospect of salad becomes a whole lot tastier. So make this, and at the click of a finger, a delicious salad is there for you. I particularly like it sprinkled over leaves with goat’s cheese.
