Vietnamese: pork salads

I love Vietnamese food and made these great salads for lunch but could be a dinner too.

Vietnamese pork salad w homemade nuoc cham & thai oyster sauce

I roasted cubes of pork shoulder in 180*c oven for 30minutes yesterday.  Then chopped the vegetables roughly same size. In airtight container.

Today i just had to serve it with 1-2Tb homemade nuoc cham sauce and 1tb thai oyster sauce . Simply place vegetables and pork on serving plate with thai oyster sauce drizzled over the top and microwave for 2 minutes.  Then dress salad with nuoc cham dressing, fresh mint, fresh coriander and crispy Asian noodles.

Vegetables used capsicum, baby corn, bok choy, carrot, green beans, broccoli, celery and mushrooms.
