Grilled Jerk Pork Salad with Citrus Dressing

We had some pork in the freezer and we thought it would be a good change of pace, so I put it in the fridge and let it thaw.

We seasoned the pork with a generous portion of jerk seasoning and a bit of salt since jerk has no salt in it. After a few minutes on the Griddler it was cooked just about right.

I chopped up some romaine lettuce and then added some mandarin oranges, golden raisins and sliced almonds.

I got the dressing recipe from It has a couple different citrus flavors and some toasted curry powder.  The recipe is here.

The bright jerk flavor was complimented well by the bit of background heat from the curry powder. The salad also had some tang and the two types of orange flavors made it just sweet enough to balance the other seasonings.

The variety of textures from the meat and the other salad components also made it feel more varied than eating just a leafy salad.

We were very satisfied and the dressing will definitely be in our standard repertoire.  We have some of the dressing left over and will try it some grilled romaine soon.

Finally, it was pretty dish. Below are a couple of photos of it.
