Shabu-Shabu Salad

I'm a whuss when it comes to the cold. Growing up in SoCal I've been spoiled my whole life with wonderful weather and anything below 70 degrees is considered freezing to me. I love the summer and I welcome the heat. I'm comfortably warm up to 100 degrees... but if it gets any hotter I'll start to complain.
When it gets close to that complaining temperature, I just don't feel like making a fussy meal. I want something quick and fresh, like this shabu-shabu salad I made the other day. Traditionally, shabu-shabu is made over a boiling hot pot of water but it's just too hot for that so I made the cold salad version. This dish is great for those lazy summer days where you just don't feel like doing a lot of cooking or heavy eating.

Thinly sliced pork or beef, boiled
Salad greens and lettuce
Sliced cucumber
Ponzu dressing
Grated daikon

1. Make sure the boiled meat is cooled to room temperature.
2. Place the meat on a bed of salad, top with grated daikon and ponzu sauce.
