Pork Salad With Creamy Tomatillo Dressing Recipe

Pork.3 lbs pork. (I have also used chicken) I cook this in my crock pot all day (7-10 hours). The first 4 hours I cook the pork with seasoning. Then I drain the fat and add these items for the rest of the cooking time:

1/2 cup salsa

1 cup soda (try different kinds- it changes the meat flavor. I love Sprite)

1 cup brown sugar (I usually use 1/2 cup because I’m weird about sugar)


Creamy Tomatillo Salad Dressing Recipe

Creamy Tomatillo Dressing

1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch Buttermilk dressing

1 cup buttermilk (I use the dry mix and 2/3 cup water sometimes because I always have it on hand)

1 cup mayonnaise

3 tomatillos – they look like green tomatoes with a light covering – a must!

2 cloves of garlic

1 bunch cilantro (1 cup) (Save a bit for the rice)

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 jalapeno if you want to add a little wow!

Mix in blender and refrigerate for an hour or more.


Creamy Tomatillo Dressing 

These are the items we like to use on the salad or burrito in order. I set it up like a buffet line so everyone can choose to make their burrito their own way. (And I don’t have to serve them)

Tortillas- I use the uncooked tortillas that you heat and serve. This makes it awesome!



Rice – I use brown rice. When I cook this, I add cilantro and lime.


Lettuce and/or Spinach




Tortilla chips
