Take-out Tuesday, BBQ Pork Tacos with Pineapple Cucumber Salad

Change and lighten up Taco Tuesday with these BBQ pork tacos

BBQ pork paired with a salad of fresh pineapple,

cucumbers, snow peas, cashews for a little crunch

and a drizzle of lime crema

Serve it on a flour tortilla taco style or make a BBQ taco salad bowl

You can use my easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

{recipe at the end of this post}

You can also buy prepared pulled pork at the grocery store,

this Jack Daniels brand is a good one

I like to put the toppings on a serving tray

and let everyone build their own

A garnish of fresh lime crema, made with light sour cream,

lime juice and garlic salt, makes them extra delicious

Start with a golden crisped flour tortilla

Top with warm pulled pork and a drizzle of your favorite BBQ sauce

Then add the toppings and a dab of lime crema

A wonderful combination of flavors and textures!

Course Main Course
Cuisine American, Asian


  • large flour tortillas
  • olive oil
  • cooked pulled pork* {I used meat from a pork butt} or pork tenderloin cut into small pieces
  • BBQ sauce** {any kind you like}
  • fresh pineapple chunks or canned pineapple chunks or tidbits drained
  • snow peas
  • cashews
  • English cucumber {the long ones that are wrapped in plastic}
  • shredded lettuce cabbage or slaw mix, optional
  • lime crema

Lime Crema

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 tsp garlic or more to taste


  • Heat oven to 350, wrap pulled pork in foil and reheat.
  • Heat enough olive oil in a large skillet to coat the bottom. Add tortillas, one at a time and cook until golden, turn over and cook the other side. Repeat with as many tortillas as needed. Drain tortillas on paper towels. Wrap in foil and keep warm.
  • Trim pointy ends of snow peas and cut in half. Rinse and wrap in a clean kitchen towel. Microwave for 1 minute.
  • Cut cucumber into slices and quarter them.
  • Arrange pea pods, cucumber pieces, pineapple, cashews and optional shredded lettuce or cabbage on a large platter or in a divided dish. Set warm pork, BBQ sauce, Lime Crema, and tortillas next to toppings. Diners can serve themselves and assemble their own taco creations.

    Hi Jenna, this was a very fortuitous post. I opened the refrigerator this morning and saw 2 large pieces of pork left over from New Year’s Day. I sighed and wondered what to do with it. Now I know. Thanks!
