If using pork chops, cut into thin strips. Remove strings from pea pods; cook pods in boiling water until bright green,1 minute. Drain and chill. In large saucepan, bring about 8 cups (2 L) water to a boil; add noodles and return to a boil, stirring once. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes. Drain noodles. Combine vinegar, soy, ginger, sugar, mustard mixed with 1 Tbsp/15mL water and sesame oil to make dressing. Pour 2 Tbsp/25 mL canola oil into wok or large skillet over high heat. Add pork and stir-fry until done, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from pan; keep warm. Drain drippings. Pour 1 Tbsp/15 mL canola oil into pan. Add garlic; stir-fry about 1 minute. Add onion, peppers, lemon juice and 3 Tbsp/45 mL water. Stir-fry about 3 minutes or until liquid evaporates. Mix salad greens with cilantro and arrange on large platter. Shake noodles in colander to remove water. Pour into a bowl; mix with 1/3 of dressing and mound on greens. Pour remaining dressing into wok. Add cooked pork and peas; stir to heat and coat with dressing. Arrange on and around noodles. Serve with crusty bread.
