So easy, right? For my veggies I used zucchini, summer squash, and red peppers. You can mix it up based on what you like, though! I chopped them fairly small so they would cook quickly. For the pork, I used some crockpot pulled pork and just chopped it up. You could also use leftover pork tenderloin or pork chops. My store was out of Bibb lettuce so I used Boston and it worked quite well.
