Serves 6

• 1 whole pork tenderloin, about 1 pound, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
• 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
• 1/2 sweet yellow onion, thinly sliced
• 2 tablespoons orange juice
• 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
• 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
• 8 ounces penne (or other small pasta), cooked & drained
• 3 cups broccoli florets, steamed
• 1/2 cup dried cherries
• 1/3 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped

Cooking Directions

In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over high heat.
Add pork and onion; stir-fry 4-5 minutes or until pork is lightly browned and onion is tender; set aside.

For dressing, whisk together orange juice, vinegar, salt, pepper and orange zest.

In a large serving bowl toss together pork and onion, pasta, broccoli, cherries and walnuts with dressing.

 Serve with crusty hard rolls.

Wine Suggestion: Try a chilled Sauvignon Blanc or Viognier with this fruit-based salad.

Serving Suggestions
The parts of this entrée salad come together quickly, and most can be done ahead of time: steaming the broccoli, cooking the pasta, making the dressing. It needs only some hot French bread or rolls to complete the meal.
