- Rub the skin of the pork with salt and oil then sear, skin side down on a hot plate or large fry pan until golden and crisp. Preheat the oven to 180C.
- Transfer the pork to a baking dish. Pour the stock and wine around the pork. Add the herbs and garlic and season with black pepper. Cook for 2 hours then remove from the pan and let cool. Slice.
- In a large bowl, place halved, cored and finely sliced nashi, finely sliced red onion, cored and finely sliced fennel bulb, cored and finely sliced green and red capsicum and the carrots - peeled to remove the skin, then peeled into strips. Combine.
- Make the vinaigrette by whisking the ingredients together. Add the pork to the salad and, with your hands, mix through with the vinaigrette then plate.
