gingery pork and cucumber pitas

this was different and good!!! says you can also use ground turkey or chicken instead of the pork. I really liked the cucumber salad! I made lettuce wraps with the mixture for me, Chris had pita. Says it’s a 15 minute meal, but it definitely took a bit longer than that! I nicknamed these asian tacos!
