This sounds fabulous and I'd love to try it, but you don't show the calories per serving or the total serving for 6 servings. That makes a huge difference on whether or not I will try a new recipe. Please consider this or maybe edit and add to this recipe. I'd love to check it out.
Grilled Pork Salad
Escarole, a variety of chicory, tastes less bitter than its cousins, frisée and endive. Apples are also abundant this time of year, so substitute your favorite red-skinned variety if you prefer a sweet-tart note.
