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.

    1. Yes, adding in nuts will definitely enhance the taste of this salad.

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try.

Black Bean Sauce Chicken ~ 黑豆酱鸡

  This is an easy peasy chicken dish to whip up in the kitchen which can pair well with plain white rice or plain congee.  Ingredients are not complicated and mostly available in the kitchen, but it's best to season the chicken first before stir frying them. Black Bean Sauce Chicken   ~   黑豆酱鸡 Ingredients 450 gm  chicken, cut into bite size (whole leg of chicken and breast) 2 tsp black bean sauce 4 pips of garlic, chopped 1 big onion cut into wedges 1 chilli, chopped 1 small Carrot, cut into slices Curry leaves Bit of sugar to taste Method Season the chicken with a pinch of salt. Saute the chopped garlic with the curry leaves and black bean sauce till fragrant. Add in the seasoned chicken, stir fry and sprinkle on some water if the dish is too dry. Simmer till chicken is cooked and tender. Add in the sliced carrot and onion wedges.  Fine tune to taste with a bit of sugar. Toss in the chopped chilli. Dish up to serve.
