Barbecued Pork Salad

Between the barbecue and the cole slaw this salad just oozes "summer"--everyone loved it and it got rave reviews. Though as for calories it's not one of your lighter salads.

For cole slaw:
1/2 green cabbage, shredded
2 shredded carrots
1/4 shredded red cabbage

For cole slaw dressing:
1/4 cup mustard
1/4 apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 cups sugar
salt and pepper to taste

For salad:
4 cups pulled pork
1 cup barbecue sauce
10 ounces romaine hearts, torn
4 tomatoes

For salad dressing:
1/2 cup buttermilk ranch dressing
3 tablespoons barbecue sauce (or more if desired)

In a bowl mix the ingredients for the cole slaw and in a separate bowl mix the cole slaw dressing ingredients then toss together. Divide the torn romaine among six plates. Mix the ingredients for the salad dressing and set aside. Mix the pork and barbecue sauce then divide among six plates, placing on top of romaine then sprinkling with chopped tomatoes. Add a scoop of the cole slaw and drizzle with the salad dressing.
