Pork Salad Sandwich?!??!

I found myself hungry at around 9:30 pm today... I know it's not particularly healthy to snack that late at night but meh, I really don't care. My stomach pretty much controls my actions :P

Staring at the leftovers in my fridge I decided to make a Pork Salad Sandwich (the first of its kind, according to google... I mean if you can't find it on google then it probably doesn't exist) out of the leftover bbq pork roast we had for dinner a few nights ago. The recipe is pretty simple... in fact there is no recipe. Basically I just chopped the pork into tiny shreds and added sour cream, mayonnaise, dijon mustard, dill weed, chopped waterchestnuts (for the crunchy texture) and shredded carrots (for colour). Add whatever else you want to make this sandwich more tastey, if that's even possible? Really, this sandwich can be made to suit your taste... so experiment; that's what I did.

I would have put a picture of it along with this write up, but you would basically be staring at a picture of what looks like a chicken salad sandwich with McGavin's whole wheat bread... boring I know. But the sandwich was far from boring, the mustard gave it a good zing (next time I think I'll buy some of that Hellmann's Dijonnaise, I've heard it's really tasty... not to mention healthier than regular mayo)

Interestingly enough, I was thinking the same thing as you, as I had leftovers from a fresh pork picnic roast. I think I will try some of the same ingredients that would go into other recipes like chicken salad, tuna sald, etc.. My thoughts were grind or chop pork and add celery, onion, parsley, mayo, mustard, horseradish sauce, salt and pepper. Not sure how this will turn out, but it is worth a try.
