Monthly Ingredient Challenge: Apples {Slow Cooked Pork & Apple Salad and Apple Pie Ice Cream}

I’ve recently joined a group of fellow food bloggers who do a monthly recipe challenge.

What fun – I’m so excited to be doing my first one!

The ingredient to use was apples…

I decided to do 2 dishes, because you just HAVE to have a sweet apple dish in the mix.

My slow-cooked pork & apple salad is so versatile, you can have the salad version in summer {or whenever you feel like salad} or have just the pork with apples as a hot dish!

I decided to also make an ice cream, because it’s just been SO hot lately {Summer in SA} and nothing beats ice cream.

Being a ‘low-carber’, the ingredient was a bit of a challenge, because apples are fruit {duh} and they’re quite high in sugar {naturally}. However, they are allowed and you should just then keep an eye on the rest of your hidden carbs for the day – and definitely not eat more fruit that day!
