No need to fire up grill to get barbecue flavor

Try this quick and easy barbecue pork salad for a summer weekend. It has a barbecue flavor without heating up the grill.
This is a one-pot meal that's great for two, or increase the recipe for a crowd.
I have used pork tenderloin for this recipe because it cooks quickly and has very little fat. Choose a barbecue sauce that has little or no added sugar.

Barbecue pork salad
2 teaspoons canola oil
3/4 pound pork tenderloin, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/4 cup no-sugar-added barbecue sauce
4 cups romaine lettuce leaves torn into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, defrosted
1/2 cup rinsed and drained red kidney beans
2 tablespoons walnut halves
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon reduced-fat vinaigrette
2 slices whole grain baguette
Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and sauté 3 to 4 minutes. Add barbecue sauce, and toss to coat pork and warm through, about 1 minute. A meat thermometer should read 145 degrees. Remove from heat.
Place lettuce, corn, kidney beans and walnuts in a salad bowl. Add the pork and tomatoes. Toss well. Drizzle with vinaigrette. Serve with the baguette slices.
