Strawberry, granola and yogurt parfait

Everyone in our family loves strawberries and especially the ones from the farmers market. But these are not from the farmers market - they are our California grown strawberries which are sweet and larger than those from the farmers market. They taste great in a parfait with yogurt and granola - a good alternative from cereal for breakfast. French Vanilla Yogurt is my personal favorite and a granola with pecans or walnuts but without dried fruits. A drizzle of good quality balsamic vinegar or balsamic crema (Eataly in NYC has a great one), takes this parfait to the next level, making it worthy of being served for dessert. The version in the picture is the breakfast version.

Strawberry, granola and yogurt parfait
As you can see there is no recipe for this parfait, you can add as much or as little of each of the ingredients that make up the parfait i.e. yogurt, strawberries and granola. If you are using plain yogurt, mix in some honey or maple syrup as per your taste. Greek yogurt is really good as well.

Note: Mangoes can be substituted for strawberries and it tastes great too.
