Instructions

  1. To make dressing, stir all ingredients together in small bowl until blended; cover and refrigerate.
  2. To make pork and salad, spray pork with nonstick spray; sprinkle with oregano, salt, and pepper flakes and toss. Heat oil in large cast-iron or other heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook, without stirring, until pork is browned and just cooked through, about 3 minutes.
  3. Toss together salad greens, chickpeas, tomatoes, onion, and 1/2 cup dressing in large bowl until coated. Put 11/2 cups salad onto each of 4 plates or bowls. Top each serving evenly with pork and drizzle each with 2 tablespoons dressing. Sprinkle evenly with olives and fresh oregano (if using).
  4. Serving size: 1 salad

Notes

Note from Chef Eric: If you can find it, try using lean trimmed lamb loin instead of pork in this recipe for no change in the Points. Lamb has a subtle gaminess that’s great in a Greek-influenced salad like this one.
