Caribbean Pork Roast with Mango Salsa

I am at the Las Vegas Airport on my way home to Texas! I LOVE that this airport has free internet access. It makes the layovers much more bearable. In other news. Yesterday we set up for the May menu at Dream Dinners and here is a picture of me with my winning recipe! It is featured on the Dream Dinner's menu nationwide. Yay! 

This recipe was inspired by Gina's Weight Watcher blog. I don't think you can go wrong with slow cooked pork, it somehow always turns out yummy.

Caribbean Pork Roast with Mango Salsa
1 pork roast
5 garlic cloves
1-2 Tbsp Caribean Jerk Seasoning
salt and pepper
2 limes
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup diced mango
1 Tbsp diced red onion
1 Tbsp chopped cilantro
1/2 avocado, diced

THE NIGHT BEFORE: Crush garlic cloves. I used a glass cup.

 Make slits all over the pork and stuff with crushed garlic cloves.
 Rub Caribbean seasonings into pork on all sides.
Place pork roast in the crock pot dish.  Juice the 2 limes over the pork roast.
 Pour pineapple juice over the pork roast. Allow roast to sit in the juice overnight in the refrigerator. 
 The next morning turn on the crock pot on to low and cook for 8 hours.
 Use 2 forks to shred the meat.
 Dice mangos and avocados.
 Mix together mangos, avocado, cilantro, red onion, salt and pepper.

 I served the pork over polenta but you could also serve it over white rice. Top with salsa.
