Recipe Ingredients:

4 boneless pork cutlets, about 1/2-inch thick

Marinade:
1/4 cup orange-passion juice
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
1 tablespoon peeled and grated fresh gingerroot
1 tablespoon sesame oil

Dressing:
1/3 cup orange-passion juice
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon peeled and minced or finely grated fresh gingerroot

Salad:
1 (16-ounce) bag iceberg lettuce salad mix
1 (10-ounce) bag hearts of romaine lettuce
1 (15-ounce) can mandarin oranges
1/3 cup dried sweetened cherries
1/3 cup honey-roasted flavored sliced almonds (or toasted almonds)
1 tablespoon stemmed and finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Place pork in a resealable plastic bag; set aside.
  2. In small bowl, stir together marinade ingredients; pour over pork. Seal bag; refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours.
