Serves 6.

• 1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin, cut into thin strips
• 1 medium bunch kale
• 2 teaspoons ground coriander, divided
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
• 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
• 1 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
• 1/4 cup lime juice
• 1/3 cup tangerine juice *
• 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
• 1 1/4 cups fresh pineapple slices, cubed, divided**

• 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, snipped, divided
• 4 tangerines, peeled and sectioned (or 2 navel oranges)

• 3 tablespoons shredded coconut, toasted ***

Stack kale leaves and roll up tightly; slice crosswise into very thin strips; place in serving bowl.
Add drained black beans.

Season pork strips with 1 teaspoon coriander, salt and pepper.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in large non-stick skillet over high heat.
Stir-fry pork strips until they are golden brown, about 3-5 minutes.
Place pork strips in serving bowl with black beans and kale.

In blender, combine citrus juices, remaining tablespoon olive oil, red pepper flakes, 1/4 cup pineapple cubes, remaining 1 teaspoon coriander, 1/4 cup cilantro, and salt and pepper to taste.
Blend until smooth.

Add tangerine sections and remaining pineapple cubes to salad bowl.
Toss salad with dressing.
Garnish with remaining cilantro and toasted coconut.

* Tangerine juice can be found in the refrigerator case or as a frozen concentrate.
** Canned pineapple rings in natural juices, cut into cubes, may be substituted for fresh pineapple.
*** To toast coconut, spread on shallow cookie sheet and toast in 325 degree F. oven for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally to toast evenly.

Serving Suggestions
Kale is used in this salad makes it as pretty as it is flavorful. The mild cabbagey flavor contrasts nicely with the citrus and pineapple. All the ingredients, especially the dressing, can be ready ahead of time. Stir fry pork at the last minute and toss all together just before serving. Serve as part of a light dinner or luncheon with breadsticks and iced tea.
