A loaf of whole-grain or sesame seed bread completes the dinner. Blue cheese balances the sweetness of the pears and raisins; choose a premium variety such as Maytag for more intensity.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle pork evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until browned.

Step 2

Combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper, 3 tablespoons water, vinegar, and oil in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Step 3

Combine pear, raisins, and spinach in a large bowl; toss well. Arrange 2 cups spinach mixture on each of 4 plates, and drizzle evenly with vinegar mixture. Top each serving with 3 pork slices and 1 1/2 teaspoons cheese.

Pretty straightforward, really easy. Sprinkled a hint of allspice on the pork and cooked it on the George Foreman. Composed the salad on plates rather than tossing, seemed quicker & easier to portion that way. Served with garlic naan.
