Serves 4

1 pound boneless pork chops, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
(OR 3 cups cooked cubed pork)
1 teaspoon olive oil*
8 ounces rotini pasta, uncooked
1 20-oz. can pineapple chunks, drained
3/4 cup diagonally sliced celery
1/2 cup chopped dates
2 cups fresh spinach leaves
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
4 tablespoons vinaigrette salad dressing

Cooking Directions

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Cook pork 4-5 minutes or until nicely browned, stirring frequently.
Remove from heat and cool. Place in salad bowl.

Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions; rinse under cold running water; drain.

Add pasta, pineapple, celery, dates, spinach and mint to salad bowl; toss to combine.

Just before serving, drizzle raspberry vinaigrette over entire mixture.

Toss to coat evenly. Serve evenly.

*Note: Omit olive oil if using cooked cubed pork. Combine all ingredients; drizzle with salad dressing; toss before serving.

Serving Suggestions
While the recipe uses cubed boneless pork chops, this salad is a good way to use leftover pork. A simple salad that can be served for lunch or a light summer supper.
