Pork Skewers with Apple-Ginger Salsa

Summer calls for lots of yummy grilling recipes, which is why I’m sharing these Pork Skewers with Apple-Ginger Salsa! They’re super simple, but they’re also full of flavor! If you need a fast, easy recipe for a barbecue, this dish is for you!

Although this is a Paleo food blog, at least a half of my recipes are vegan/vegetarian . . . not because I am vegetarian, but because I hate cooking meat! I can’t stand the smell of raw beef, and raw meat just grosses me out in general. Accordingly, I felt very accomplished when I cooked this recipe! (It was actually really easy.) Not only is it a main dish (I am to have a certain number of those on my blog), it is low-carb and Whole30! Double whammy!

These Pork Skewers with Apple-Ginger Salsa are also really pretty! I love the contrast (flavor-wise and color-wise) between the red bell peppers and the onions. Of course, the grill marks are beautiful too.

I have a confession to make — I didn’t actually grill these! I cooked them in a hot skillet on my cooktop. You can do the same, and have grilled food without a grill! If you would prefer to grill them, you can easily experiment with a real grill. Unfortunately, I can’t help you there since I’m not a certified GrillMaster like my dad. 😉

p.s. The salsa part of these Pork Skewers with Apple-Ginger Salsa is my favorite!! It’s so flavorful and versatile. In fact, I put it on top of other meats once the skewers were gone, since it makes extra!

In other news, I go back to school in exactly two weeks and I am so so so sad. I actually love school (kinda, minus the stress eek!!) because I generally enjoy my classes and I enjoy seeing my friends. However, I feel like this summer was crazy short! I had one week of vacation (although we didn’t go out of town) before I started work and Summer PE. After PE ended, my German exchange student came in and work continued. Once work ended, band started . . . and now we’re here.

I hope you have a wonderful Monday! I’m posting my August Bullet Journal Setup tomorrow, so come back to see that! I loved the theme this month & I bet you’ll love it too!

Ingredients
Skewers

Instructions
  1. Mix 2 cups of warm water with a few teaspoons of kosher salt. Once the salt dissolves, add the pork and brine for 30-60 minutes. Do not brine longer, because the pork will become mushy.
  2. Alternating between chunks of pork, onion, and apple, make the skewers.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the skewers in a little olive oil until the vegetables are blackened and the meat is cooked all the way through.
  4. Meanwhile, make the salsa: mix all ingredients together.
  5. Serve the cooked skewers with the salsa. Enjoy!
