Prunes are making a comeback, and not just in your grandma’s pantry! Great for bone health and full of fibre, California prunes are such a simple way to add a little natural sweetness to your grain salads. Below is a quick little recipe I created; it’s so tasty that you may want to double it.
Grain Salad with Prunes
Makes 4 servings
Grain Salad Ingredients:
1 cup rice blend, uncooked (I used brown basmati, red, and wild rice)
2 cups water
10 pitted prunes, quartered
1/2 cup broccoli stalks, shaved
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp grainy mustard
1 tsp coconut aminos
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
Dash of salt
Cook rice and allow 15-20 mins to chill.
While waiting, whisk all dressing ingredients together.
Add chilled rice, prunes, broccoli, and dressing to a bowl and toss to evenly coat.
Plate and enjoy!
