I just wanted to report that I made the cafe rio salad last week, and boy was it delicious! The recipes aren’t mine… they come from the friend of a friend of a friend. But they are definitely something you should try at home… but be warned, it makes a ton of food, so invite your nearest and dearest over & have a party!
Missed the recipes? Don’t worry, just follow the links:
Once you’ve made the dressing, pork, rice & beans, it’s almost time to eat. But you still have to assemble the salad. Start with a tortilla (we used the disposable aluminum pie tins, but you could use a bowl), then layer on cooked beans, rice, romaine lettuce, pork, dressing, and any of your favorite toppings: pico de gallo, guacamole, tortilla strips, cheese, cilantro & lime.
Hope you love it too!
