Prep Time: 15 Min.
Cook Time: n/a
Marinate: 35 Min.
What you need:
* 3 c. cooked pork loin, cut in julienne strips
* 3 c. cooked wild rice, chilled
* 1 c. coarsely chopped walnuts
* 1/4 c. chopped red onion
* 1 c. cubed fresh pineapple, chilled (or 1 8-oz. can chunks, drained)
* 1 c. sliced mushrooms
* 1 (10-oz.) pkg. fresh spinach leaves, cleaned and torn
* 1 c. raspberries, cleaned
* 1 mango, peeled and diced
* 1/3 c. raspberry vinegar
* 2 Tbsp. olive oil
* 2 tsp. honey
* 1/4 tsp. salt
What to do:
1. In small bowl stir together vinegar, olive oil, honey and salt.
2. In large bowl toss together pork, rice, walnuts, onion, pineapple and mushrooms; add vinegar mixture and toss to coat evenly.
3. Arrange spinach on large serving platter; top with pork mixture. Arrange raspberries and mango on top.
* Serving Suggestions: This tangy entrée salad pairs choice fruits--pineapple, raspberries, mango--with sophisticated wild rice and fresh spinach. Three cups of cooked pork loin is a little over a pound of pork roast--leftovers from a roast would be perfect in this hearty "day two" device.
