A time-tested classic, this traditional salad gets a contemporary twist with the addition of stir-fried pork tenderloin.


  • 1 pork tenderloin, cut into stir-fry strips
  • 1/4 cup grapefruit juice
  • 2 Tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp poppy seed
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 6 cups mixed salad greens
  • 2 small red grapefruit, peeled and sectioned
  • 1 1/2 cups seedless grapes, halved


  • In small bowl whisk together grapefruit juice, vinegar, 1 tablespoon oil, poppy seed, honey and mustard until well blended; set aside. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork strips; cook about 3 minutes or until pork is lightly browned.
  • On each of four dinner plates place 1 1/2 cups greens, top with pork strips and arrange grapefruit sections, grapes and strawberries around pork. Spoon dressing over salads.
