    1. Heat one tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over high heat. Stir-fry pork strips until lightly browned, about 4-5 minutes. In a small bowl stir together remaining oil, lemon juice, orange zest, sugar and salt. In a medium bowl, toss together rice, oranges, pecans and cherries with dressing. Arrange lettuce on a serving platter, mound rice in center, top with pork strips and garnish with extra chopped pecans, if desired.
