I got this recipe from a class at Sur la Table, I thought it would be just like every other granola I have had but I was wrong. The kosher salt really makes this dish, you might even think of using sea salt to get that nice salty kick! Sub any of your favorite dried fruits into this and it will be a great holiday gift!
