Serving Suggestions

This cool sandwich gives a great excuse for making a pork roast the night before. Thinly sliced pork is layered with sliced orange and red pepper and topped with a seasoned sour cream sauce.

Slices of perfectly ripe avocado can be served alongside or on the sandwich. Serve with fresh veggies and dip.
