Delicious Hawaiian Pulled Pork Salad

Hawaiian Pulled Pork Salad



Years ago my hubby and I went to Iggy’s Sports Grill with some friends. We haven’t been back since, and this might not taste anything like the salad I had that night, but it inspired me to put this delicious salad together.


It’s really easy to make but requires a little bit of time. It’s worth it though!


Hawaiian Pulled Pork Salad

3 lb. Pork Shoulder Roast, trimmed
McCormick BBQ Pulled Pork Season Packet
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup cider vinegar
Canned Pineapple
Mandarin Oranges
Red Onion
Fried Won Ton Strips (We fry our own in a little bit of vegetable oil, but you can find them ready to serve in most grocery stores.)
Sugared Almonds
Poppy Seed Dressing (Our favorite is Brianna’s Home Style in a jar with a black lid and a white label)


Hawaiian Pulled Pork Salad Directions:


Put pork should in your crockpot. Mix seasoning packet, ketchup, vinegar, and brown sugar together in a small bowl. Pour over pork. Cover. Cook 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high. Remove from the crockpot. Shred pork with 2 forks. Return to the slow cooker with remaining sauce. Stir and reheat.
Stack your salad with pineapple, oranges, onions, won ton strips, sugared almonds, and garnish with cilantro. Toss with Poppy Seed Dressing.
Tip: You can make your own sugared almonds. Put about 1/2 cup of sugar in a frying pan with 1 cup of slivered almonds. Cook over medium-high heat or until sugar starts to caramelize and stick to almonds, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.
*Make sure you let them cool on wax paper before you sample them or you’ll burn your tongue off. Trust me, I have learned from experience!

  1. Hi,
    I want to try making this for a ladies' luncheon, but I'm not sure about how to serve the pork. Can you tell me if the pork is warm when you put it on the salad, or has it cooled off?

    1. I think it's best slightly warm. We just did an assembly line when we served this for a family function, and the meat was on low in a crock pot. Let me know how it goes Lisa!
