This delicious, sweet and creamy salad goes really well with burgers or other grill favorites. Grate enough parsnips to get 4 cups grated. Sprinkle 2 Tbsp rice vinegar and 1/4 cup of pure cranberry juice over the grated parsnips. Stir and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, mix up 1/2 cup sour cream, 2 Tbsp sugar, and 1/4 tsp salt to make the dressing. Add the parsnip mixture and 3/4 cups dried cranberries to the dressing and toss. Refrigerate overnight before serving.
To make a delicious granola, mix 3 cups old-fashioned oats, 2 Tbsp brown sugar, 3/4 tsp salt, 3/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 3/4 tsp ginger, 1/4 cup canola oil, and 2 Tbsp maple syrup in a 9 x 13 ceramic baking pan. Bake at 300°F for 24 minutes, stirring every 8 minutes. Let cool, add your favorites nuts and/or dried fruit, and enjoy!
