Asian Pork Tenderloin Salad Recipe

Asian Pork Tenderloin Salad Recipe

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.
