From Christina Dymock, amazing Cookbook Author and my dear friend:


"My newly released cookbook, The Healthy Family Slow Cooker Cookbook, is chock full of wonderful recipes for your slow cooker. Traditionally, home chefs think of the slow cooker as a winter appliance, but there are many wonderful recipes for those summer months too. Try the Island Pork Salad recipe below. It’s a light meal that includes fruits and veggies — perfect for a summer night."

Pork Island Salad (7)
Island Pork Salad
Serves 6
This recipe has everything: protein, greens, and fruit. If you’d like to add cheese, you’ll also have dairy.
1 (2-3 pound) pork roast or 6 thin sliced pork chops
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 (?? Ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained
4 cups spinach
2 cups chopped iceberg lettuce
1 orange or yellow pepper, sliced
½ cup raisins
1 avocado, cubed
¾ cup olive oil
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon orange juice
2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon curry powder
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon honey

Place the pork in a slow cooker. In a small bowl, mix together the pepper, cumin, chili powder, and cinnamon. Rub into pork. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours or until the meat is cooked through. Remove the meat from the slow cooker and set aside to cool while you prepare the salad.

In a large salad bowl, toss the spinach, lettuce, pepper, raisings, avocado pieces, and mandarin oranges. Divide the salad between 6 plates. Cut the pork and divide between the salads. 

To make the dressing, Place the lime juice, orange juice, Dijon mustard, curry powder, pepper, and olive oil in a container with a tight lid. Cover and shake well. Pour dressing over salads or serve on the side.
