Copycat Cafe Rio Salad // This Copycat Cafe Rio Sweet Pork Salad is just like the restaurant favorite! It's flavorful and delicious. Next time you're enjoying Cafe Rio at home, make this salad! | Tried and TastyA couple of weeks ago I put together a Mexican fiesta of sorts. I’d been really wanting some Cafe Rio and rather than going out to get it, I decided to make it all from scratch.. because that’s easier than jumping in the car right? We had the works and it was DELICIOUS! If you have never had Cafe Rio’s soup, you HAVE to try my Copycat Cafe Rio Tortilla Soup recipe. It’s AMAZING! So flavorful and so delicious. We also had Copycat Cafe Rio Chicken, Copycat Cafe Rio Guacamole and Pico De Gallo  It was an all out Mexican feast including my Copycat Cafe Rio Sweet Pork, Copycat Cafe Rio Cilantro Lime Rice and of course my Copycat Cafe Rio Tomatillo Dressing! I wish I could have invited you all because it was so tasty I thought for sure I was at the restaurant. Plus I had lots of leftovers (which I never have when I eat there sadly!). With all the key components, it only made sense to have salads at some point too right? 

If you’re a local, I’ll be teaching a class at the Pinners Conference on ‘Copycat Favorites’. If you’re free Friday November 7th @ 1:30 come to my class at the South Towne Expo Center and taste a couple of yummy recipes from your favorite restaurants that you can make right at home!

      Awesome! I too LOVE Cafe Rio! Love, love, LOVE it! The best part about it, I can have extra sour cream and guac and don’t have to pay a fortune – haha!

      Ha! It’s so delicious, and although it is easier to go out – it’s so fun to make it at home too!!
