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.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

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. 

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Double Boiled Herbal Chicken Soup

Double boiling is slow cooking ........ means to put a soup pot or any covered ceramic or steel pot inside a bigger pot, immerse in boiling water, and let the soup cook at a lower temperature.  Hence the soup is cooked from heat generated from the boiling water and not from direct heat source. Double boiling lets the soup ingredients slowly release their nutrients into the soup, thus making it tasty and wholesome.  It's a long cooking process, roughly averaging 2 to 4 hours.  The tip is not to open the cover to check on the soup as it'll bring down the temperature and affect the cooking process.  The plus point is there's little evaporation and the soup will not boil over.  The only thing is to monitor that there's enough water in the bigger pot and not let it run dry.  Of course, nowadays, the slow cooker is another alternative to double boiling, saves the hassle of checking the water level.
