I love salads. Summer is the perfect time of year for them, too. I live in Colorado and I do not have air conditioner in my home (when we built the house the builders assured us we didn’t need it, they were wrong!!!) so there are several weeks during the hot months that I just don’t want to turn on the oven… A refreshing summer salad is just the way to go!
Here is the next summer salad I am loving, how can you go wrong with pulled pork (my favorite recipe coming soon!)…
This recipe is adapted from Paleo Periodical.
Ingredients for 4 salads:
1 lime, juiced
1/4 cup olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup pickled jalapenos, chopped (optional)
salt and pepper, to taste
6-8 ounces mixed green salad
4 ounces red cabbage, finely shredded
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
12-16 ounces shredded pulled pork (3-4 ounces per salad)
2 avocados, sliced
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, lightly toasted
- In bottom of large salad bowl, whisk together lime juice, olive oil, garlic, jalapenos and S&P. Add lettuce greens, cabbage, and cilantro. Toss to combine.
