Expert Tips

If you can't find the teriyaki-flavored pork tenderloin, purchase a plain tenderloin and generously brush it with teriyaki sauce before cutting into strips.

Looking for an easy way to save some time? Purchase a bag of torn mixed greens or a salad mixture including carrots. Also, check the salad bar for pea pods and shredded carrots.

For extra crunch and eye appeal, sprinkle the salad with chow mein noodles before serving, or put out a small bowl of noodles and let guests serve themselves.
