Mixed Greens with Pork

Wondering what to do with boring leftover pork chops? I love adding pork to salads. Just:

1. Slice up the remaining pork (whether it's a chop or tenderloin).

2. Add it to a bowl of:
  • Mixed greens
  • Fresh herbs (I had basil and parsley in the garden, so I tossed them in)
  • Fruit (I used grapes, but anything sweet like an apple will work)
  • Blue cheese crumbles

3. Make dressing:

  • Put one tablespoon red wine or balsamic vinegar in a bowl
  • Add two teaspoons dijon mustard
  • Add salt and pepper
  • Toss in Italian seasoning or fresh herbs (if you have them)
  • Mince one clove of garlic
  • Whisk in two tablespoons olive oil
  • Adjust to your taste

Toss all your indredients and put a delicious spin on leftover pork!
