7. Place the Dijon mustard in a blender and add the salt and cider vinegar. Blitz on a slow speed while gradually adding the olive oil. Add the potatoes, spring greens and spring onions to a bowl and toss together with the dressing

8. Once the pork is ready, remove from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving with the potatoes and spring greens
