Pork and Pear Pecan Salad

I did promise you heaps of salads this summer didn't I? I do not think I have EVER ate so much salads before. But with our change of schedule and focus on our health and future, it just seems so right to do. Not only that, I am starting to enjoy the 5-10 minutes on the stove grilling a meat and then assembling veges together.

I am slowly learning how to vary these salads though. Not just grilled chicken on veges. Turns out that pork pairs very well with pear just as well with apple. The sweetness of pear, and texture of pork- yum yum.

Best of all, did I mention it takes like 15 minutes altogether?

Pork and Pear Pecan Salad (serves 4)
4 pieces of pork loin chops
1 tablespoon of olive oil
sprinkle of chill and turmeric
1 pear sliced
5-6 cups of salad leaves
cherry tomatoes or 2 large tomatoes sliced
1 avocado chopped
handful of pecan nuts
2 green chili pad chopped
2 tablespoon of soy sauce

Marinate pork with oil, and spices. Grill both sides once for around 3-5 minutes. Cool and sliced. wash all salad, assemble, and place slices of pork on it. Mix soy with chill. Then sprinkle on pork slices.
