Servings: 6
Prep Time: 15 min.
Leftover roasted pork goes into this quick, easy summer salad. Vary the taste by experimenting with different fresh herbs.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb cooked pork loin roast, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 12 oz bags frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh tomatoes, diced
  • 2 Tbs fresh herbs, minced
  • leaf lettuce
  • 1 Tbs cornstarch
  • 1 cup water, divided
  • 1 tsp Dijon-style mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbs olive oil

Directions

  • For vinaigrette, stir together cornstarch and 1/4 cup water; blend thoroughly. In small saucepan, bring remaining 3/4 cup water to boil; stir in cornstarch mixture; cook and stir to thicken. Remove from heat, cool completely and stir in remaining vinaigrette ingredients. Store in refrigerator if made ahead.
