Spiced Corn & Plum Prana Salad

Spiced Corn & Plum Prana Salad

 The dish was inspired by founder & CEO Amber Stott’s ripe pluots over a conversation with colleagues in India. In India, plums are often cooked into chutney. We uses those spices to build a flavor-packed, fresh salad that uses the best of late summer, early fall farmers market produce.
