I’ve been craving this. So, finally since we’re well into the new year, I decided it just had to happen. And, by this, I mean Pulled Pork Enchilada Salad.

Mercy! I do believe it is one of my favorite salads ever. After all of the holiday foods, this little kick of spice was just what I needed.

And pulled pork? Yeah, well, I think it has to be my husband’s favorite food ever.

The history on this salad is that I really was craving pulled pork enchiladas, but decided that turning it into a salad just sounded like what should happen in January. Add more veggies, take away some bread.

But now I’m really thinking that I’ll just make this salad whenever I have a craving for the enchilada version and see if that feeds it for me.

While my husband had smoked this pulled pork over the weekend, I’d stashed a bit of it to the side just for such an occasion for making my enchiladas this week. I was somewhat concerned that my husband might not like my fiddling with the pork he’d smoked for hours on end and throwing it in this salad. Not that he usually cares, but you just never know about men, their pulled pork, and smokers. They can get just a wee bit finicky from time to time.

 


Well, if this gives you any indication, once he’d eaten his salad, he began just eating the pulled pork in the spicy sauce I’d made to go on the salad.

As the saying goes from one of my favorite commercials growing up, I felt like shouting, “He likes it. He really likes it!”

Here’s the recipe for my Pulled Pork Enchilada Salad. I hope you love it as much as my husband does!

  1. Just threw a pork roast in the Crockpot this morning. I’m using the new Crockpot seasoning mix for pulled pork. Thing I’ll give this a try next time. Hope I can find Sriracha sauce.

    1. I’m not sure what all is in the seasoning mix, but if you have any left over I bet it would still be delicious in this salad. Sriracha sauce is shelved with the Mexican foods in my grocery store. There are a few brands, but we really like the one with the green top! It is also available online.

  2. This looks beautiful! I’ve had pulled pork salads before, but never with the Mexican twist. We gave our son a smoker for Christmas…what a great recipe for him to make!! Looking forward to giving this a try. Thanks for the great idea!!!!!

  3. Made this last night… Delicious!! I made the enchilada sauce from scratch instead of a canned version and added avocado, asparagus and bell peppers to the salad. Perfect summer time dinner!!
