Slow-Roasted Tomato and Cilantro-Cashew Picnic Sandwich Recipe

I'm a romantic at heart so I have these swoon-worthy visions of summertime picnics. At the seaside, at sunset, or at a music performance, there's something about the perfect picnic that just makes my culinary heart pitter patter.

Sure, comfort food from a hole-in-the-wall diner sounds amazing but riding in the car after eating a gut-bomb is asking for a food coma. So, before I hit the road I make these no-bake Blueberry Almond Granola Bars. They're easy to make, loaded with good-for-me ingredients, satisfies both the sweet and savory tooth, and, best of all, they haven't been sitting on a gas station shelf for six months.

Asian Chicken Salad with Creamy Mustard Miso Dressing Recipe
