  1. Sprinkle pork with cumin, 1 ml (1/4 tsp) salt and pepper; let stand 15 minutes.
  2. Heat outdoor grill to medium-high (or heat grill pan over medium-high heat).
  3. Grill pork, turning occasionally, until a meat thermometer inserted in center reads at least 63°C (145°F), about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove pork to cutting board and let rest for a minimum of 3 minutes, but up to 10 minutes, before slicing.
  4. Meanwhile, combine lime juice, mayonnaise, oil, adobo sauce and remaining 1 ml (1/4 tsp) salt in a small bowl; stir in cilantro.
  5. Combine romaine, tomatoes, yellow pepper, jicama, avocado and chipotle pepper in a large deep platter; drizzle with about half the dressing and toss to mix and coat. Arrange sliced pork on top of salad; drizzle with remaining dressing. Yields about 85 g (3 oz) pork, 625 ml (2 1/2 cups) salad and 22 ml (1 1/2 Tbsp) dressing per serving.


*You don’t need to buy a separate can of adobo sauce. The can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce will contain enough sauce for the salad dressing recipe.
