Easy, Light Salad

I had a recipe kicking around on my computer from a couple of years ago and it was interesting to me but not quite flavorful enough. So I tweaked it here and there and we ended up with a yummy dinner!

Ginger Pork & Pear Spinach Salad

1 lb. sliced or diced lean pork
1 - 2 pears diced
1 bag baby spinach leaves cleaned
feta or blue cheese for topping salad
fresh ginger and garlic - about a T of ginger and a clove or 2 of garlic

1/4 cup olive oil
2 T honey
2 T cider or white wine vinegar (you can do this to taste too)
salt and pepper to taste
2-3 tsp. dijon mustard
2 tsp. lemon juice.
you can do all of this to taste too. Blend it and toss with the salad.

For the salad.
Saute the pork in some olive oil until almost done. Then toss with the ginger and garlic and a touch of salt to season.

Toss the pork, spinach, pear and cheese together and top with the dressing or the dressing of your choice.
