  3. 200g pork tenderloin
  4. 1 Cox’s apple
  5. 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  6. Small bag salad leaves of your choice


  1. 1. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a frying pan and cook the bread for 4-5 minutes, tossing regularly. Drain on kitchen paper and set aside.

  3. 3. Cut the apple into 12 wedges and fry in the same pan for 1-2 minutes, turning once, until dark golden. Remove and set aside. Add the cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon olive oil and sizzle briefly. Season well.
  4. 4. Toss the salad with the home-made croutons and apple wedges and divide between 2 plates. Top with the pork and drizzle with the dressing.
