RE: RECIPE: Apricot-Dijon Pork Salad

Yum - sounds great to me. Becky, I just heard about a contest on the radio using Dole packaged salads. Maybe you could submit this? Well, as I'm typing this I see that you got it from a pork source, oh well - maybe you could change it around enough to make it your own :) In any event, I'll try to find more about the contest, just for fun.
