  • ¼ cup low-sugar orange marmalade or low-sugar apricot preserves
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. To prepare the dressing: Stir together orange marmalade, soy sauce, vinegar, toasted sesame oil, and garlic in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Lightly coat an unheated wok or large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook for 2 minutes. Add sweet pepper and continue to cook about 3 minutes or until pork is no longer pink and sweet pepper is crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Add one-fourth of the dressing to the pan; stir until well coated. Remove pan from heat.
  3. In a large bowl, drizzle remaining dressing over cabbage; toss to coat. On a serving platter, layer cabbage, pork mixture, and cucumber. Sprinkle with green onions and almonds. Serve immediately.

My new go to when pork goes on sale. Divine. I make it even easier by using a bag of coleslaw mix instead of the cabbage. This salad is crunchy and chewy at the same time. Love it!
