3. In a large bowl, toss the cabbage with the red onion, capers and 3/4 cup of the dressing and season with salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour.
4. Shred the pork, discarding all of the bones and fat. Add the pork to the cabbage salad and toss well. Transfer the salad to plates and pass the remaining dressing at the table.
