With summer in full swing, most people prefer light, tasty, easy-to-prepare meals. Food Lover’s Market shares an inspirational recipe for a tasty Crispy Pork Salad served in a leaf cup. Quinton Mostert, store manager at Food Lover’s Market at Mall at Newmarket, says this is a delicious Asian-inspired recipe, but the addition of nectarines adds a touch of summer sweetness to the salad.
400g pork rashers. Alternatively substitute with succulent pork fillets.
1 pack of coleslaw mix
50g peas, halved
2 – 3 spring onions, thinly sliced lengthways
¼ cucumber, julienned (cut into short thin strips)
2 nectarines, stoned and sliced into thin wedges
2 tablespoons fresh coriander, chopped
1 lettuce head
Sesame seeds, toasted
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sunflower or olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon ginger, grated
2 tablespoon lime juice (freshly squeezed, or Food Lover’s Market lime juice)
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
For the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a jar, shaking it to emulsify and allow flavours to develop.
Place pork rashers on a medium-to-hot grill and cook until crispy, turning regularly to ensure both sides are cooked evenly. Remove from heat and slice finely.
For the coleslaw, combine peas, spring onion, cucumber, nectarines and coriander gently.
Break off all the leaves from the lettuce head, wash and pat dry.
Place the mixed salad into the leaf “cups”, top with bacon and sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds. Drizzle with a dressing and serve.
