Pomegranate Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Green Apple Salad

Pomegranate Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Green Apple Salad

I love fresh ingredients–the more, the merrier.  Despite the  trend over the past several years to use few ingredients when cooking, I’ve resisted the urge to jump on that bland food bandwagon.
