Tequila-Spiked Jicama Salad and Roast Pork – Friday Night Bites!

It’s time for Friday Night Bites and tonight is FOR ADULTS ONLY.  It’s cocktail hour on a fork – we spiked the salad!

Tequila-Spiked Jicama Salad paired with grilled pork is the perfect way to kick off the Labor Day Weekend.  Save the hamburgers and hot dogs for Monday’s celebration and go in a different direction tonight.   The pairing of the reposado tequila with orange and crunchy jicama gives you the greatest cocktail/appetizer combo ever. And it’s easy to eat, no balancing a drink and plate, it’s all in rolled into one bite!  Serve this sensational side with your favorite recipe for pork tenderloin. We love a pork tenderloin on the grill.   Need a recipe for the oven, try this one Pork Roast>
