A homemade marinade adds delicious flavor to the stir-fried pork in this main dish salad. The fast, fresh meal is easy to toss together with canned apricots and convenient salad kits. TIP: Look for the Asian crunch salad mix in the produce section near other bagged salad blends. If you can’t find it, pick up mixed greens, snow peas, shredded carrot, chow mein noodles and a bottle of sesame ginger or Asian-style salad dressing.
- 1 can (15 ounces) apricot halves
- 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound), thinly sliced
- 2 packages (9-3/4 ounces each) Asian crunch salad mix
- Drain apricots, reserving 1/2 cup juice; set apricots aside. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, oil, ginger, garlic, mustard and reserved apricot juice; add pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
