Healthy Vietnamese Pork Salad

I got this recipe form Women's Health. It's healthy, delicious and different.

Vietnamese Pork Salad my way

~12 ounce natural pork tenderloin
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
3 tablespoons sugar
1 clove garlic, peeled, cored and pressed
2 tablespoons fish sauce
i bag shredded cabbage & carrot coleslaw mix
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup lightly salted peanuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place pork on a foil-lined baking sheet; sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon salt and cook until thermometer registers 160 degrees F, about 25 minutes. Let meat rest for 10 minutes. Cut meat into bite size pieces.

Place lime juice, sugar, and garlic in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover with microwave-safe plastic wrap and microwave on high until sugar melts, 20 to 30 seconds. Let cool. Stir in fish sauce and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt.

In a large bowl, gently toss coleslaw mix, scallions, and cilantro. Pour lime mixture over veggies, add pork, and toss gently. Top salad with nuts before serving.

This was simple, quick and delicious. Enjoy!
