Try this quick and easy barbecue pork salad for the weekend. It has a barbecue flavor without heating up the grill. This is a one-pot meal that's great for two, or increase the recipe for a crowd.

I have used pork tenderloin for this recipe because it cooks quickly and has very little fat. Choose a barbecue sauce that has little or no added sugar.

Barbecue Pork Salad

Ingredients:

•2 teaspoons canola oil

•3/4 pound pork tenderloin, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

•1/4 cup no-sugar-added barbecue sauce

•4 cups romaine lettuce leaves torn into bite-size pieces

•1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, defrosted

•1/2 cup rinsed and drained red kidney beans

•2 tablespoons walnut halves

•1 cup cherry tomatoes

•1 tablespoon reduced-fat vinaigrette

•2 slices whole grain baguette

Directions:

Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and saute 3 to 4 minutes. Add barbecue sauce, and toss to coat pork and warm through, about 1 minute. A meat thermometer should read 145 degrees. Remove from heat.

Place lettuce, corn, kidney beans and walnuts in a salad bowl. Add the pork and tomatoes. Toss well. Drizzle with vinaigrette. Serve with the baguette slices.

Makes: 2 servings.
