The temperature is changing quickly and so changes our dinner routine. We are removing the dusty cover from our barbecues and taking meals outside to the fresh summer air.
Easy meals are essential at this time of year because we all want to spend little time cooking and big time enjoying our friends and family. These recipes are great for entertaining or for a fun family meal. I’ve taken a LiberTerre pork tenderloin and I’ve done something a little unconventional with it. Because the tenderloin is so tender, I thought it would work great threaded onto a skewer and barbecued.

I’ve given the pork a marinade of soy sauce and sesame flavours. These flavours continue to the dipping sauce but they get a hit of heat with red chili flakes.
What better pairing to barbecued skewers then a fresh, crunchy and delicious Asian slaw. Cutting all of the ingredients could be tedious work, however, the great thing about this salad is that you can easily prepare it the night before and store it in a Ziploc bag in your refrigerator overnight. The next day, add the simple dressing and your salad is ready to go!
This meal is always a winner with my family and friends and I will make you a bet that they’ll be asking you for this recipe (trust me!) 😉
