Updated Nov 11, 2008

Ingredients

  • 3/4 lb pork tenderloin, cut into thin bite-size strips
  • 1/4 cup Italian dressing
  • 5 teaspoons (half of 1-oz envelope) ranch dressing mix (not buttermilk recipe)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 5 to 6 cups bite-size pieces mixed Boston and red leaf lettuces
  • 1 cup small broccoli florets
  • 2 medium zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 plum (Roma) tomatoes, each cut into 6 wedges

Steps

  • 1
    In small bowl, toss pork and Italian dressing. Let stand at room temperature 10 minutes to marinate.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in another small bowl, mix ranch dressing mix (dry), mayonnaise and milk; set aside.
  • 3
    In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook pork in oil, stirring frequently, until pork is no longer pink.
  • 4
    Among 4 plates, divide lettuce. Top each with broccoli, zucchini, tomato wedges and pork. Drizzle dressing over salads.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Any variety of tomato can be substituted for the plum tomatoes.
  • tip 2
    Use reduced-fat or fat-free Italian dressing, reduced-fat or fat-free mayonnaise and fat-free (skim) milk instead of the regular products.
  • tip 3
    Mix it up! Use one zucchini and one yellow summer squash instead of two zucchini.
