Spicy Summer Salad on the Patio

Salad with Pork, Romano shards, Spicy snack mix, Nuts, and Green Chile Ranch Dressing

It was such a lovely evening outside last night. It’s been SO hot and humid that even a little cool air felt so nice! I opened all the windows to let the summer breeze in, and was foraging around the kitchen looking for something for dinner.

This is what I found:

  • Mixed greens & fresh spinach
  • Leftover pork from that pork dish I made the other night
  • Chopped vidalia onion (I always have onion!)
  • Shards of romano
  • Spicy east Indian snack mix (I think any spicy salty snack mix would go well, but the Indian spices were really nice with the salad)
  • Chick peas
  • Toasted almonds & pinons
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Green chile ranch dressing
 I tossed it all together in a bowl for a lovely dinner salad and savored it on the patio with a glass of red wine.
