This Is a great way to take that left over dried up pork and make it into a creamy, crunchy sandwich. Made with celery, onions, peppers and maple dressing! If your left over pork was well seasoned taste before adding salt and pepper.Use store bought maple dressing or Maple Dijon dressing Maple Dijon Dressing.

Today, I set out to use my leftover pork chops, came across this and decided to give a shot. It is quite good, I used My Best Salad Dressing for the dressing, as I had some of that leftover as well. I also added a chopped red delicious apple and a handful of dried cranberries. Thanks for sharing!
Outstanding is too mild a word for this sandwich and the dressing... Outrageously outstanding!! Use leftover Jerked Pork Roast which added nicely to the taste. The dressing really makes this wonderful! I made 2 days ahead for perfect melding of the flavors. Thanks for posting this yummy recipe! Made for ZWT3. UPDATE: 08.27.09 Made this into a salad with Rita's suggested dried cranberries and some slivered almonds--using some left-over Paula Deen spicy pork. I can't praise this enough. It's truly a jewel! THX, Rita for posting this.
The magic of these sandwiches is the dressing. It was truly wonderful. I would recommend using the word "minced" instead of "diced" for the chopped items. Even though I chopped things fairly fine, it was still a pretty messy sandwich. I served it on Texas toast (bread toasted on the grill) with the lettuce on the side plus sliced avocado and tomato using the extra dressing. Frankly, this would be a great salad - just make homemade croutons, add the avocado and tomato and you've got a really tasty salad. I only gave it 4 stars because the meat mixture just didn't hold together as sandwich filling needs to do to stay inside the bread. Taste was fabulous! Compliments were received. (I used left-over pork roast from Cajun Pork Roast which was spicy, so I skipped the salt and pepper.)
