things to eat: summer pulled pork!

we have subscribed to bon appetit magazine for as long as i can remember - there is a whole shelf, deep in a ignored cupboard, full of them. some still in the plastic. if a title or picture on the front catches my eye then i will flip through it but will almost always argue that most of the recipes or ingredients are over our head. it is still fun to feel fancy when it shows up every month though.

sometime during the spring a issue showed up that was about the perfect sandwich. we try and stay as gluten-free as possible around here, but bread man, just so yummy, and good a sandwich follows closely. this particular issue and the makings of a perfectly photographed to make your mouth water concotion inside had caught my eye and we had a family lunch coming up so we decided to give it a whirl. now, i am pretty positive that we didn't follow the exact recipe but it was pretty close and delicious either way. the article also called for it to be paired with a piece of fried chicken on the sandwich, but since we already had pulled pork marinating in the slow cooker we went with that instead.

how to:
pulled pork, cooked and marinated to your liking
cibatta rolls

1 garlic clove,m finely grated
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 jalapeƱo, thinly sliced
4 cups thinly sliced cabbage
1/2 cup of bread-and-butter pickle slices, + 1/2 cup of pickle juice

mix garlic, mayo, and hot sauce in small bowl and chill (the mix not you). toss rest of ingredients in pickle juice. combine everything, cover and chill.

build your sandwich with roll, pork, and slaw and then enjoy.

what is your favorite summer time recipe? i am always looking for new ones!
