Blackened Pork Caesar Salad

Contributed By: Parker


2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/8 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3/4 pound pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 tablespoon blackened seasoning
1 tablespoon canola oil
6 cups torn romaine
Shredded Parmesan cheese and salad croutons, optional


1. For dressing, in a small bowl, mix the first 6 ingredients until blended.
2. Toss pork with blackened seasoning. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook and stir until tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
3. To serve, place romaine in a large bowl; add dressing and toss to coat. Top with pork, and, if desired, croutons and cheese.

Helpful Hints:

When I cook, the goal is to have enough leftovers for lunch the next day. This Caesar with pork has fantastic flavor even when the meat is chilled.
