Pork Salad with Apple and Raisin


I was browsing through a book .... Women's Weekly - 'Toss" and it contained many recipes for salads, stir-fries and quick meals.  This is a very straightforward salad making use of greens and fruits but I threw in some leftover pork fillet as well!  Pork fillet, one may ask.......  Sounds weird with added meat but then it's just personal preference and moreover I just don't like to put food to waste.



Recipe for Pork Salad with Apple and Raisin

    Ingredients

    • 250 gm pan fried pork fillet seasoned with some salt, sugar and light soya sauce.
    • 1 medium size green apple, sliced, thinly.  (Drizzle on some lime juice to prevent browning).
    • 1/2 cup raisins
    • 2 cups salad greens
    Lime Dijon dressing
    • 1  tsp Dijon mustard
    • 2  tsp lime juice
    • 2  Tbsp olive oil
    • 1 clove garlic, pressed -  All mixed well together
    Method
    1. Slice up the pan-fried pork fillet.  Place them into a large bowl with the salad greens and sliced apples.
    2. Mix in the dressing, toss gently to combine.
    3. Sprinkle on some raisins.
    4. Serve immediately.

  1. Wow, this is really creative of you, I would never have thought of adding leftover pork fillet in a salad, maybe chicken, but definitely not pork! A great idea to use up leftovers and in a healthy way too!

    1. Yes, I just remembered I had some leftovers in the fridge. Not bad, filling enough to double up as a meal!

  2. Looks delicious! I like the idea of adding meat, make it more substantial for a meal on its own:D

  3. I still remember fondly the green apple (in cubes), raisins and walnuts salad laced with mayonnaise which I have tried in Australia. The lightly toasted walnuts will definitely add marks to the salad.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
