Pulled Pork 'Hawaiian' Style Salad
with pineapple, carrots, and tomatoes

Active: 25 min Total: 25 min

We're taking our leftover pulled pork to the tropics in this flavorful (and colorful) salad. There is sweetness, crunch, spice, and tang. Best of all, it'll be quick and easy with leftover pork. If you didn't make last night's pulled pork, then just sub bacon or ham. Since it's not pineapple season, use canned or frozen.

I made the paleo version so it was a salad and it was delicious! I loved the flavors!

Make sure you really crisp up that crust before topping it. I'd even recommend that after adding the toppings, you bake it directly on the lowest oven rack to prevent the crust getting overly soggy.

Next time would skip the salad. Yes, I'm bad!

This was mostly a fail but my fault. For starters the pizza crust I made was the worst I have done (note to self do but rush it when making dough) Then I put way to much sauce which I did while rushing to make it.. I think this would have benefited with cheese but my husband has allergies so I skipped it. I heard others loved the pizza so I blame it on me for this one. The salad was awesome and I enjoyed the dressing. I never thought about putting pineapple in a salad before.

We also used BBQ in the sauce, it was so good. We loved the dressing on the salad, also subbed homemade pickles jalapeños and it cooled them a bit
