Bircher Muesli Recipe

While I was living in Switzerland one of my Swiss friends introduced me to bircher muesli, a delicious, healthy treat to enjoy for a light evening meal.  As a Kiwi used to having a main meal at dinner time I have it for breakfast instead.  One of the things I love about this recipe is how easy it is to make and how versatile it is.  Once you have added the main ingredients you can spice it up with anything that you have on hand.
