    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This pork salad it to die for, it is one that you should really not pass up on making! I have made this several times, it is one of my family favorite main dish salads. If you prefer more apricot dressing, just double the recipe. To save time I most always cook the tenderloin a day ahead, slice and just refrigerate until ready to use it saves a lot of time and prep work. I have substituted feta for the blue cheese, and walnuts for the pecans, also, I have made this salad on several occasions using cooked chicken breast in place of the pork tenderloin, just broil the breast and baste using the same method using the apricot glaze. If serving more than 3-4 people I suggest to double the recipe, I could eat this whole salad myself lol! Prep time includes cooking the tenderloin or chicken breast.

      This salad was really delicious! I will only change a couple of things though the next time I make it. The dressing was really sweet for us so I might half the amount and add more mustard. Also, I will use the dried apricots instead of canned and add more blue cheese.
      Thanks for posting!
