This Asian salad with pulled pork and ginger dressing is fresh, delicious, and full of yummy rich Asian flavors. So, If you’re sick of a boring green salad look no further! When you buy Asian salad dressing in the store it’s typically high in fat and full additives and preservatives you really don’t want. This dressing is light and has just the right amount of ginger flavor. Adding the sliced almonds on top of the salad give this dish a nice crunch. You can make this salad with leftovers from a pork roast or pork tenderloin. Any type of shredded, or cubed pork works well too!
