So easy and delicious! Thought the pork tasted even better a few days later.

I couldn’t get into this salad. I wasn’t sure when I bit into avocado if it was a piece of pork fat I missed or what. The textures didn’t work for me and the flavor combos were not speaking to me. It might have been better on a flour tortilla. The dressing on its own is a great Asian vinaigrette, though.

I omitted the miso because I didn't have any. Easy to throw together with the leftover pork and very flavorful.

This was a big hit with the adults! I had chicken nuggets and pineapple for the kids bc they aren’t big into salad.
