Foodie Friday: Recipe Adapted from the Real Food RDs.
Happy Foodie Friday! Today I am doing things a little different and featuring a recipe developed by the Real food Dietitians Jess and Stacie. I love the ladies behind this site! As a fellow RD it is so nice to see individuals that have similar thoughts on food and nutrition. As stated on their website they have gluten free and allergen friendly meals. BBQ Ranch Pork Chop Salad with Brussels Sprouts & Kale is the recipe I will be making today on this Foodie Friday.
BBQ Ranch Pork Chop Salad with Brussels Sprouts & Kale
Today I am taking a recipe from the Real food Dietitians website and putting a little different spin on it. Their recipe features a crunchy and super delicious salad made with green kale, and Brussels sprouts for extra nutrition and super crunchiness. If you are a fan of the combination of BBQ and Ranch you have got to make this recipe. The Brussels sprouts are shredded and are extremely mild in this dish. Before heading on over to their site for the directions I am going to walk you through the ingredients, substitutions, and changes I made.
For this recipe a really useful tool is a food processor with a shredded attachment and the regular blade also. This will definitely save you some time on cutting and chopping. I used the shredder for the Brussels sprouts and carrots. I used the regular blade for the red onion. I used a whisk for combining the BBQ sauce and ranch and a large bowl for combining the salad. I used a skillet to pan fry the pork chops.
Substitutions and Adaptations
For this recipe I did not have any golden raisins on hand so I didn’t include them in the recipe. I also used a different brand of BBQ sauce and Ranch. However Tesseme’s is a fabulous brand and you should definitely give their sauces and dressings a shot.
You will need :
shredded Brussels sprouts
toasted slivered almonds
Ranch and BBQ of choice.
Bacon or bacon bits
I added some cooked pork chops to add a little extra protein.
