I have been thinking about this salad ever since I had it in Washington DC at the Mitsimam Cafe at the National Museum of the American Indian almost a year ago now. We were staying with family friends of the Dr’s while we were there and they suggested that while we were visiting the museums that we have lunch there. At first I was kinda skeptical, a recommendation to go to a cafe in a museum? hmmm, ok.
So I made my own granola, yeah I did and it was a sad and happy occasion. Happy because it was sooo gooood, sad because I hadn’t discovered this recipe earlier. As I’m writing this, my belly is aching a little…I think I overdid it slightly with the granola but that’s how addictive it is – but I’m sure the rest of you have more strength than I do. I think if the Dr had come home while I was baking the granola he would have thought that I was possessed, I was crouched down in front of the oven door inhaling the granola fumes, almost ripping the oven door off the oven. Good lord.
