Here’s a hearty supper-salad that makes great use of late fall produce. The cabbage is sturdy enough to hold up overnight, giving you crisp, meaty leftovers for lunch.
- Prep: 15 min
- Cooking: 10 min
- 2 tsp (10 mL) butter
- 4 boneless pork chops 3/4˝ (2 cm) thick
- 4 cups (1 L) Chinese or napa cabbage thinly sliced
- 2 cups (500 mL) red cabbage thinly sliced
- 2 cups (500 mL) Brussels sprouts thinly sliced
- 1 Asian pear or green apple julienned

- 2 tbsp (30 mL) Thai or regular basil chopped
- 1 tsp (5 mL) chili flakes
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 5 oz (150 g) Canadian Mozzarella julienned
In a skillet, melt butter and cook pork chops for 4–5 minutes on each side over medium-high heat.
