Apple and Pork Stir-fry with Ginger

Featured in the revised edition of The New American Plate.

Printed with permission from the American Institute for Cancer Research

INGREDIENTS
2 Tbsp. peach jam, preferably fruit sweetened
2 Tbsp. reduced sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp. water
1/2 tsp. cornstarch
1 1/2 tsp. dark toasted sesame oil
1 Tbsp. finely minced fresh ginger root
1/2 pound (8 ounces) pork tenderloin, cut into thin strips
1 1/2 tsp. canola oil
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup chopped yellow bell pepper
1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
2 firm apples, such as Fuji or Gala, cut into one-inch pieces
1/2 cup scallions, thinly sliced
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


DIRECTIONS
1. In small bowl, combine jam, soy sauce, water and cornstarch. Set aside.

2. In large non-stick skillet, heat sesame oil over medium high heat. Add pork and ginger and stir-fry until pork is browned and just cooked through, about 3-5 minutes.

3. Transfer pork and ginger to bowl with slotted spoon. Add canola oil to skillet. Stir-fry peppers, water chestnuts, and apples until peppers are crisp tender, about 3 minutes.

4. Add pork back to skillet along with scallions. Stir-fry 30 seconds. Add jam mixture. Continue to stir-fry 30 seconds to one minute, or until sauce thickens. Season to taste with black pepper.

Makes 4 servings (2 oz cooked pork per serving.)

Summer Cucumber Salsa

a new twist on salsa, great for using cukes from the garden in the summer!

INGREDIENTS
3 medium-large cucumbers
3 small-medium tomatoes
1 green bell pepper
1/2 cup red onion
2 jalapeno peppers
2 Tbsp minced cilantro
2 Tbsp minced fresh dill
3 squeezes of lime juice (either from wedges or a lime-bottle)

DIRECTIONS
(20 minute prep-time is for chopping up all the ingredients.)

Peel cucumber (if desired- you can leave the peel on if you prefer- I usually do, or at least leave some of it). Remove seeds from cucumber and discard, and chop remaining cucumber flesh into small pieces.
Remove seeds from tomatoes and discard. Chop remaining flesh into small pieces.
Remove seeds from bell pepper and discard. Chop bell pepper into small pieces.
Remove seeds from jalapeno peppers and chop into very small pieces (or mince).
Chop red onion into small pieces.
Mince cilantro and dill.

Combine all chopped veggies in a large bowl.
Add cilantro and dill and mix together well.
Add a few squeezes of lime juice and mix together again.

Serve with your choice of tortilla chips (not included in nutritional information). I use baked chips to make the recipe a little more healthy. I've found this salsa tastes great on baked "Scoops" chips, or corn tortilla chips with the "hint of lime" flavor. It especially worked well when I served it with Mango-Peach baked fruit chips!
