Vietnamese Shaking Pork Salad

We’re shaking things up in the kitchen this week, with a Vietnamese Shaking Pork salad. This Vietnamese classic is traditionally prepared with beef and white rice, but we’ve created a really healthy and tasty alternative for the whole family with pork and a quinoa & rice mix.
