1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
3 green onions, finely chopped
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger

Process pork in a food processor until coarsely chopped.

Sauté pork in a large skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain and cool.

Combine pork, cilantro, and next 7 ingredients.

Stir together vinegar, soy sauce, and olive oil. Drizzle over slaw, tossing to coat. Top with pork mixture; serve with cucumber slices, and, if desired, rice. Garnish, if desired.

Note: Fish sauce is found in Asian markets and large supermarkets.
