HOT PORK AND PEAR SALAD

Serves 6

1 pound boneless pork chops, cut into 3 x 1/4-inch strips
2 ripe, yet firm pears
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped
6 cups mixed salad greens


Cooking Directions
Cut pork into 3x1/4-inch strips; set aside.

Pare and core pears; cut into 12 slices.

Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet; gently sauté pears until they are tender but still hold their shape.

Remove from pan and set aside.

Add oil to pan and stir-fry pork until lightly browned, about 3 minutes.

Remove pork from pan; add vinegar, sugar and salt to pan juices; cook and stir until sugar dissolves.

Return pork and pears to pan with raisins, stir gently to heat through.

Put salad greens in a large salad bowl; spoon over pork mixture, toss.

Garnish with walnuts.

Serving Suggestions
When pears are in season, think of this satisfying main dish salad: A homey supper for a winter Sunday. When it’s not pear season, substitute canned pears. Complete the menu with warm dinner rolls.
