Pork Burger & Veggy Salad

Pork Burger & Veggy Salad
Pork burgers are one my favorite things to eat lately. Ever since I discovered ground pork, which is cheaper, healthier, and tastier to me than ground beef, I've been eating a lot more burgers. Accompanying this is a veggy salad inspired by a recipe from GreenWise Magazine (Marinated Zucchini & Mushrooms).

(all the quantities listed are for reference. You can use more or less to taste)

Pork Burgers
- mince 1-2 cloves of garlic
- mince 1 thick slice of onion (any kind will do, but I prefer red)
- add the minced garlic and onions to the ground pork
- add seasoning of your choice (salt & pepper or everglades seasoning works great)
- add some Worcestershire sauce (you can also use A1 or any other steak sauce you like)
- put gloves on and massage the meat to mix in all the ingredients evenly
- make into patties and grill (1 lb makes about 4 patties)

Veggy Salad
- mince 1-2 cloves of garlic
- mince 1 thick slice of onion (I prefer red)
- chop any leftover vegetables you have into bite size pieces (I usually use a combination of peppers, zucchini, squash, cucumber, mushrooms, radish, tomatoes--anything really that you don't mind eating raw)
- combine all ingredients in a bowl
- season the veggies to taste (salt & pepper is usually enough since the minced garlic and onions sever as seasoning too--I gotta remember to add some fresh basil =P)
- add extra virgin olive oil and vinegar (white or red wine works well) to taste
- serve; this keeps well refrigerated for a few days. If you put too much oil/vinegar it may get soggy though.
