    1 cup arborio rice or medium-grain white rice
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup red wine vinegar
    2 tablespoons olive oil (preferably extra-virgin)
    1 large egg
    1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

Stir egg pieces, pork, peas, red onion and parsley into rice. Season salad to taste with salt and pepper. Line shallow bowl with lettuce leaves. Spoon rice salad onto leaves. Surround with tomato wedges. Serve at room temperature.
