  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 cups)

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 2 (7-inch) pitas
  • 3 cups chopped tomato
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, quartered lengthwise, and sliced into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1 (7-ounce) bottle roasted red bell peppers, drained and chopped

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Combine garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pork, tossing well to coat. Let stand 5 minutes.

Arrange pitas in a single layer directly on oven rack. Bake at 400° for 5 minutes or until crisp; transfer to a wire rack.

While pitas bake, add pork mixture to pan; cook 5 minutes or until done, stirring frequently. Place pork mixture in a large bowl. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, tomato, onions, mint, vinegar, juice, cucumber, and peppers. Break the toasted pita bread into bite-sized pieces. Add pita pieces to pork mixture; toss to combine.
