Oh how I love salads in spring!

Salads / May 3, 2014

That herb crusted pork loin I made last Saturday? It did double duty spreading love all through the week. I used it to make a chopped salad, with ingredients inspired by chicken salad. Simple southern dressing with Duke’s mayo, and some pretty golden raisins, with lots of fresh herbs (plus a bit of mashed roasted garlic) and delicious just arrived.


Chopped Pork Salad


Time 15 minutes / Serves 4


1 ½ to 2 Cups leftover pork loin roast finely diced (I used my herb crusted pork loin. That is where a lot of the flavor for this comes from.)
2 ribs celery or 1 ½ large ribs
1/3 C white onion FINELY
diced (the size of peas)
1/3 C chopped cilantro
¼ C chopped parsley
1/3 C golden raisins
½ C Duke’s Mayo
1 T yellow mustard
1 t honey
1 t apple cider vinegar
1 mashed roasted clove of garlic
1/8 C milk or less to keep it the right consistency
Salt and pepper


  • Blend all ingredients. I like to get the salad ready, then mix the dressing in another bowl and add a little at a time so it’s not too moist. Salt and pepper to taste.
