Presenting high-quality, fresh dishes at an affordable price, Tender Greens currently has 12 restaurant locations across California and is expected to expand to 20 locations by 2016. Named as one of the fastest growing privately owned small businesses by Inc. Magazine, Tender Greens provides hearty salads, hot plates and artisan sandwiches. There's something for everyone at Tender Greens that tastes good and is good for you, so it's no wonder why first time guests are immediately transformed into longtime fans. In addition to their core offerings, Tender Greens also presents daily specials, created by the executive chef at each restaurant location. Imagined by Executive Chef Rian Brandenburg of Tender Greens' Santa Monica location, you may find a recipe for the Slow Cooked Porchetta Salad below, made with herbs, citrus and fresh cut pork.
Crisp, crackly skin redolent with the flavor and aroma of rosemary, fennel seed, and garlic encases a moist, flavorful interior that's delicious to the last bite. Serve this porchetta with a hearty side dish such as these Lentils with Herbs and Sun-Dried Tomatoes, which complement the rich fattiness of the pork nicely.
The reason this works as a great tailgating or casual party recipe is that you can do most of it ahead, and also because guests can help assemble their own and even customize. Porchetta sandwiches are best left simple in my opinion, but condiments like a grainy or Dijon mustard and add-ons like some garlicky sautéed greens or caramelized onions would be delicious as well.
