Here we are using an already prepared breaded schnitzel to make this quick and delicoius Pork Schnitzel with Israeli Salad and Halloumi for dinner tonight!
Buying good quality produce and specialty items is sometimes a better experience when you visit markets or specialty stores.
We picked up some prepared and breaded schnitzel from local grocery store Sunterra Market. They offer an assortment of options for those who don’t love to do a lot of prep work but want something quick and easy.
Supporting local ranchers, farmers and our community is something everyone should consider when shopping.
Alberta Pork offers resources, information and is a non-profit organization representing the province’s registered hog producers before government, industry partners, media, the general public and other interest groups.
Sunterra Market has their own pork farm right here in Alberta with great prices and amazing taste.
Earlier this year we made a chicken schnitzel recipe with an Israeli style salad. A quick protein and half your plate of vegetables is exactly how I like to eat, and this became my inspiration for the salad included in this recipe.
The Israeli salad features all the traditional items like tomato, onion, cucumber and fresh herbs plus the addition of grilled halloumi cheese.
- Chop your vegetables the night before to save time on preparations
- Local, fresh produce has the best flavour
- Know where your meat comes from and support local suppliers
- If you can’t find what you want in the meat department, ask the butcher as they are very helpful
We like to serve our meals family style on a platter with a sprinkle of chopped toasted pistachios adding a little extra crunch.
- Sunterra Farms started in Acme in 1970 by Stan and Flo Price and their eldest son Dave.
- All three Sunterra companies are still owned and operated by the Price family.
Sunterra Market has seven locations in Calgary and two in Edmonton. Each location may offer a slightly different set up, but they all have the same great local products, good quality and awesome selection.
