All About Pork | Greek Salad with Pork Cutlets
When I told everyone that I was making Greek Salad with Pork (which we call Souvlaki) for dinner, they were all super-ecstatic.
“With Tzatziki, Mama?” I was asked.
“How could we have it without?” I questioned rhetorically.
It’s definitely one of our family’s favorite comfort foods. And, it holds a special place in my heart (Michael’s, too), because it was the first meal we had together, way back when, in 1994, at a little Greek Dive one town over from where I was raised.
This past month has been so fun with all the different recipes I’ve tried. There’s been Baked Pork Egg Rolls, Braised Pork with Peppers and Onions, Pork Pita Pockets, and today’s Greek Salad with Pork Cutlets! The common thread that has gone through all of them is that they were healthful and flavorful. Not to mention they were a hit, through-and-through. I encourage you to try these recipes or look for other great recipes on Pork Be Inspired.
When I asked everyone which Pork Be Inspired meal was there favorite, they all said that this one was, hands down. So, if you want to impress your family head over to your local Publix, tomorrow, and pick up a pack of their Pork Sirloin Cutlets (that are on sale right now!)
Earlier today, when I was cashing out, there was a man behind me, in the check-out line, checking out my cutlets. He asked what I was going to make and when I told him “Pork Souvlaki with Tzatziki Sauce” he responded that he didn’t know what that was but that it sounded fantastic. And, boy-oh-boy, was he right!
1 1/4 pounds pork loin cutlets, 1/8″ thick
Greek-Style Dressing (buy it or make it, it’s up to you!)
Tzatziki Sauce (make it, you’ll be glad you did!)
8 cups romaine lettuce
Cherry tomatoes, halved
2 1/2 teaspoons Greek seasoning (Look in the spice section of the supermarket for a pre-blended Greek seasoning blend; I used McCormick brand. If unavailable, substitute 2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves, 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt, 1/8 teaspoon onion powder and 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt for the 2 1/2 teaspoons Greek seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt. )
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Nonstick cooking spray
black pepper, freshly ground
Make Tzatziki Sauce, cover and refrigerate until serving.
Place lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumber slices (if you like) in very large salad bowl. Gently toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate while preparing pork.
Combine Greek seasoning and salt; sprinkle and rub evenly over pork. Cook the cutlets over medium-high heat in large skillet coated with nonstick cooking for 2-3 minutes or until tender.
Transfer cutlets to cutting board.
To serve, divide lettuce mixture among plates. Arrange 1/4 of pork on each salad. Drizzle 2 tablespoons dressing over each salad. Sprinkle with black pepper, if desired. Serve with Tzatziki and warm, toasty pita.
