When I make a salad to be enjoyed as a main course, rather than an accompaniment to a meal, I like my salad to be hearty. I use vegetables that need much mastication, high on the chew-worthy scale. Which, of course, can take time to eat, but above all is really tasty. Today’s recipe, honey mustard pork summer salad, is just that.
The major vegetable ingredient in a honey mustard pork summer salad is sliced brussels sprouts. You know how much I like brussels sprouts – right? I will eat them any way, sautéd, grilled, baked, raw, and when you add slices of pork, shallots, apple and a tasty honey mustard dressing, you have a winner.
I would describe honey mustard pork summer salad as a “ladies who lunch” salad.
Ladies, you can serve up a hearty bowl to your friends, and they will be ever so pleased. This salad is a clean eating experience. Whole foods and fresh ingredients, your friends will be so happy to be the recipients of this dish.
There will be no complaints of over-indulgence, unless of course, cocktails or wines are consumed. Maybe a glass or two of Pimms is in order. Or if Pimms is not your thing, then honey mustard pork summer salad goes really well with Chablis or a crisp rosé.
A wonderful lunchtime treat, don’t you agree? I might plan a ladies lunch myself and round the meal off with a fresh fruit salad. My friends will love it.
I really enjoyed creating this salad, so I hope you give this one a try. If you do, let me know.
