Reviews for Savory Pork Salad
"This was a delicious dinner. I only used 6 oz. of pork, added carrot, sugar snap peas, red pepper and red onion, along with the tomato...I made a mistake and used the olive oil in the dressing instead of using it to brown the meat. I used a non-stick cooking spray to do that. Next time I will leave the olive oil out. This was perfect for a hot summer day."
