Recipe Time

Hands-on: 50 Minutes
Total: 1 Hour, 40 Minutes


6 (12-inch) wooden skewers
1 (1 1/2-lb.) package pork tenderloins
1 pt. sweet mini bell peppers
Salt and pepper
1 (5-oz.) package spring greens mix
2 mangoes, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup roasted, salted cashews, chopped


1. Soak wooden skewers in hot water to cover 30 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, remove silver skin from tenderloin, leaving a thin layer of fat; cut pork into 2-inch pieces. Pour 1/4 cup Citrus-Chimichurri Vinaigrette into a large shallow dish; add pork pieces, turning to coat. Cover and chill 30 minutes.

3. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Remove pork from marinade, discarding marinade. Thread pork and sweet peppers alternately onto skewers, leaving a 1/4-inch space between pieces. Let stand 15 minutes. Grill kabobs, covered with grill lid, 5 to 7 minutes or until done. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Let stand 5 minutes.

4. Divide salad greens among 6 salad plates. Top with sliced mango and kabobs. Drizzle with desired amount of remaining vinaigrette, and sprinkle with raisins and cashews.
