It is summer time and for me, that means lots of salads make it to my weekly menu plans. I love how easy salads are to whip up when I am busy or don’t feel like cooking. There are just so many variations and options for what to include in a salad. This week, I am sharing a sweet and savory salad that showcases a real underrated dried fruit variety–the prune!
Ok, so prunes are not just for helping regulate your body–although these probiotic prunes sure do help! They have so many more benefits and actually do taste amazing. Mariani Probiotic Pitted Prunes are made using California grown prunes and support overall wellness and digestive health, so you can feel better and be your best.
So what is a probiotic prune you wonder? Mariani prunes are prebiotic, which the probiotic needs to feed off of. Prunes also have additional vitamins that are great for your health & wellness. But, these prunes don’t just include any old probiotic! The Ganeden BC30 probiotic in Mariani Probiotic Prunes is unique.
They are designed by nature to survive and thrive in conditions other probiotics cannot. By surviving, Ganeden BC30 delivers active probiotics ten times more effectively than the probiotics in yogurt.
I don’t know about you, but that is really cool to me! I do not love taking probiotic pills and really am not the biggest yogurt fan. In fact, I only really started even eating yogurt the last 3 years! I much rather purchase a couple of inexpensive Mariani Probiotic Prunes from Stop & Shop and get my gut in check!
But, if munching a serving of plain prunes is not your thing, you can add Mariani Probiotic Prunes to cold recipes like smoothies, salads, or no-bake bars. You just cannot cook with these because you will inadvertently kill off the good bacteria.
This Quick Pecan, Prunes, & Feta Salad with Spinach is an excellent way to consume these probiotic prunes because you can balance their flavors with savory elements like feta cheese, and sweet, shaved white onion. I love adding a sweet element to my salads like dried cranberries or prunes.
I find them to really elevate what could be a plain, boring salad.
I topped this summer salad off with some seasoned rice vinegar to keep it light, and totally well-balanced and nutritious!
