This salad covers your food-group bases: it has a veggie foundation topped with rice noodles with a bit of bite and sweet marinated pork. The key to perfect prep for this meal is giving the pork enough time to marinate—at least one hour, or as long as overnight.
The chili-garlic sauce that lends the noodles their kick of flavor also kicks the vegetables—fresh greens, cucumber, shredded carrot, and mint—up a notch. This salad definitely isn’t short on flavor, but you’ll be lucky if you’re not short on salad after everyone comes back for seconds!
