The parts of this entrée salad come together quickly, and most can be done ahead of time: steaming the broccoli, cooking the pasta, making the dressing. It needs only some hot French bread or rolls to complete the meal.


  • 1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound, cut into 1/2-inch cubes)
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion (sweet, thinly sliced)
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
