Crackling Roast Pork Salad
This was my super quick & easy crackling roast pork salad lunch yesterday. I started with a piece of cooked roasted pork bought from the supermarket deli (or the Chinese cooked meat stall at the market). While it is being reheated in the broiler for 10 minutes to regain its crackling skin blissfulness, I put together a simple salad waiting for the meat to be ready. This is an easy, quick & gratifying salad to make.

As I was lazy, I used instant salad dressing, which is an affordable $2 bottle of Yuzu dressing from Daiso. It says 7 cal for 15ml (1 serving) of salad dressing which sounds okay to me (I’m not strictly counting the calories in the first place). If you want to eat really low carb, add a few drops of lemon juice, tiny pinch of salt & pepper to a tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil.
I wonder if the picture above depicted some of the delicious crackling skin texture? To return the roasted pork bought at the supermarket or Chinese cooked meat deli back to its delicious crackling skin state, I lay a piece of cooked roasted pork, uncut and flat on a baking tray. Roast it for 10 minutes at the “fan grill” (no preheating needed) or similar mode. The trick is to place the roasted pork at the topmost rack close to the broiler. As I slice the roast pork, the crackling can be heard. The crackling skin made my lunch from meh to luxurious! Do this shortly before serving so that the crackling can be maintained. The next time I get my hands on a piece of deli roasted pork, I’ll take some step-by-step photos on the process.
My salad also comes with romaine lettuce, avocado and cherry tomatoes. Since this is a low carb meal for me, I enjoyed a pretty big piece of roast pork (about 125g) all by myself. I try to eat at least one low-carb meal a day, to combat the expanding waist line :P
