Expert Tips

The combination of pork, vegetables and peas in this recipe has created a very nutrient-dense, carbohydrate-controlled main-dish salad. That means for the calories it contains, it provides heaping amounts of protein, vitamins A and C, calcium, iron and fiber!

Cook pork and cool. Make Creamy Lime Dressing. Prepare vegetables. Refrigerate all ingredients no longer than 48 hours. Just before serving, continue as directed in Step 4.
