Well summer is here, Murray just won his first Wimbledon, the Lions won down-under and ‘al fresco’ food is irresistible during these long days.
I often think this would be a different nation with decent weather as at the first glimpse of sun and everyone is out and about. In town, any available outside seating, and there isn’t much, is taken and plumes of BBQ smoke are rising from the gardens. Great times…..except for the bad tan-lines but otherwise, yes, great times.
I ‘did’ a BBQ on Sunday and, as ever, prepared far too much. I got the Webber kettle grill out and slow roasted a piece of pork until falling apart, soaked wood-chips and all. It made the most amazing crackling too. Suffice to say it was such a shame to waste it and so in a vain attempt to do something healthier, I combined some of the leftovers into a salad.
No recipe as such here, but this was super-quick and hugely customisable. I used an asian style dressing but a simple cider-vinegar version would have worked nicely too. I also had some of Helen’s homemade coleslaw left which finished the dinner off nicely.
Great salad and good looking roast.
Thanks Rosemary. Can really tell whether this was “healthy” or not, but it was tasty 😉
Healthy is not always absolutely necessary, but tasty is 🙂
Ha! That should be my blog’s tagline 🙂
Looks like very tasty left overs to me.
Thanks Beth, I think I actually preferred this…
That looks great and excellent crackling 😉
Cheers, and I glad you pointed out the crackling! We had it with chilli salt. Lovely.
What a fabulous looking roast & that salad with that lovely meat in it looks just wonderful & truly amazing too! I watched the final Wimbledon match between Murray & Djokovic 🙂 Exciting & nerve-braking it was!
Thanks Sophie! I think that counts as a ‘hearty’ salad 😉 Glad you enjoyed the tennis too, I couldn’t watch for large parts of the match….
Looks healthy enough to me!
Well, I guess, it was halfway there 😉
