I think like most houses, my crock pot makes a weekly appearance during the summer months. I really like to cook meats that can turn into 2-3 different meals. It just gives my family a variety and me a break from cooking something new every night! You’ll love this Cilantro Lime Pork Tostada Salad from one of those crockpot dishes.
My sweet and spicy pork is one of the crock pot meals that can be transformed into many different meals. I’ve used it for burritos, baked potatoes and even nachos.
This Cilantro Lime Pork Tostada Salad version is my favorite, though. It’s super fresh and I love all the textures from the pork, beans, greens and crispy tostada!
And the “cherry on top” is definitely the creamy Cilantro Lime Dressing. This dressing truly is a dream! I like to make a little extra and use it as a dip for veggies and even tortilla chips. And don’t worry. It’s not made from hard to find fresh tomatillos! All super easy and accessible ingredients.
