Probiotic Salads and Dressings

Everybody knows we should eat more salads, but if you make probiotic salads you quadruple the benefits. The most powerful food combo you can have is prebiotics (food for bacteria) and probiotics (cultured foods) together in a meal. These salads will do just that. When you eat a probiotic salad, you’re getting billions of probiotics. Consuming prebiotics in the form of foods such as lettuce, spinach, onion, tomatoes, asparagus, apples will feed the micro-biome in your gut and make those microbes grow and multiply, building a strong army of healthy bacteria that fights pathogens, destroys viruses, and boosts your immune system so you stay healthy and strong.

Spoonful gives you billions of probiotics

Did you know that the juice from lacto-fermented pickles and vegetables is just as powerful as the vegetables themselves? Add a spoonful of cultured juice to any salad dressing or even your condiments, like ketchup and mustard, and it will add billions of probiotics and be undetectable in terms of taste. Or better yet, make your own salad dressings or condiments – I have many recipes you can see below.  This is a great way to get probiotics into picky eaters. One spoonful gives you billions of probiotics and more than a whole bottle of probiotic pills. These cultured veggies help digest proteins, build your immune system to fight off colds and flus, and give you more vitamin C than orange juice. These are a few of my very favorite salads and salad dressings. I think you will love them as much as I do.

Probiotic Salads:

Recipe
Cultured Broccoli Salad in a Jar
This is a fun way to culture your broccoli. If you like broccoli salad made with raisins and carrots, you will love this. Just take it out of the jar and mix with some of my kombucha mayo (recipe in my book). You can also just use it as a topping for your salad. Add a head of fresh lettuce to a bowl, scoop out these veggies, and serve with your favorite dressing.

Double Probiotic Broccoli Salad
You can also add dried cranberries to this dish. Make a double batch because it goes really fast and your gonna want seconds.
Recipe
Fermented-Cucumber-Tomato-Salad
You can add more fresh tomatoes (that are not fermented) to stretch the dish to feed more people. Super yummy, so the more tomatoes the merrier!

More Than Taco Salad
Taco salad is one of my favorite salads. You can add so many different types of probiotics to this salad. Try topping with a little kefir cheese for extra flavor.

Panzanella Probiotic Salad
Use leftover sourdough bread. It even works great if it's a little hard - it absorbs the flavor and makes for a great salad.
Recipe
Probiotic Potato Salad
In addition to the probiotics in the fermented veggies, I have a great kombucha mayo that works well in this potato salad.

Recipe
The Fairest Salad in the Land
One of the secret ingredients in this recipe is the Nutritional Yeast. It has a cheesy flavor and is really tasty. A spoonful of nutritional yeast is like taking a high-potency B-vitamin complex. A serving will generally stock you up with a couple of days worth of thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, B6, and B12, and a substantial amount of folic acid. You can find it at most health food stores.

Probiotic Dressings:

This recipe was created for the Salad in a fermenting jar recipe. This creamy Apple Kefir Dressing makes any salad become a probiotic salad.

I love this dressing on taco salad. This dressing uses your homemade cultured ketchup recipe. You can find the recipe here: Cultured Ketchup
Recipe
Lemon Kefir Dressing
This super yummy dressing is one I use on my kale salad, but it's also good on any salad to add a probiotic dressing!

Sunflower Kefir Garlic n Herb Dressing
This is wonderful made with Sunflower Seed Kefir but you can also make it with other types of kefir as well. If you don't have fermented garlic, then you can always substitute regular garlic cloves.

Sunflower Seed Kefir
When making non-dairy kefir, you just need to be sure the non-dairy milk has at least 8 grams of carbohydrates to give the bacteria something to eat. It uses the sugars and creates probiotics for you. You don’t get the sugar but instead you get lots of healthy bacteria. If it doesn’t have 8 grams of carbohydrates, then you can add 1 teaspoon of date paste or raw sugar per quart to give the bacteria food so it can make probiotics.
