Hot summer days call for a refreshing salad! Braised in a broth with vermouth and fresh spices and some refreshing touches of orange. Perfect for a Pulled Pork sandwich. Or even better! The the Poulet Roti style pulled chicken. Watch out for this recipe!

Serve with a delicious piece of meat or chicken on top of a toast. I've made this braised salad in combination with some Southern Pulled Chicken. Take a look for it and have a nice meal!
