Made a small batch of chicken salad tonight. Had I known the challenge I would have tarted it up a bit. Perhaps I'll do a Chinese octopus salad, or a lemongrass beef one, or Italian style lentil, or ....
If this pork is from a nice heritage, heirloom or whatever pig, it should have enough marbling so that brining is not necessary. Brining is also not necessary for slabs of factory farmed, mass produced stuff that already contains up to 15% salt solution.
