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!

  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.

Hup Toh Soh (Chinese Walnut Biscuits) ~ CNY 2020 核桃酥

These Hup Toh Soh (Chinese Walnut Biscuits) are without hup toh/walnuts.  I do remember from young that the traditional Hup Toh Soh that I ate those days were quite big, around 4 inches in diameter or because I was small and to me everything looked big!  They were made with lard and were very crunchy but there wasn't any trace of hup toh in them and nobody asked why.   Although these biscuits are without walnuts, they are still crunchy and yummy.  If you are allergic to nuts, this is a recipe for you.  Give this a try for the coming Chinese New Year.
However, if you would like to have a recipe of  Hup Toh Soh with walnuts, do hop in 'here'.
