Instructions

To make Thai Pork Kebabs

  • Place strawberries, orange juice, cinnamon, cumin and cayenne pepper in the work bowl of a food processor and puree until smooth. Pour into a medium mixing bowl. Add pork strips, stirring to coat all sides. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Immerse skewers in water for 20-30 minutes (this will keep skewers from burning).
  • Heat a grill or grill pan over medium high heat. Thread pork onto skewers and grill for 3 minutes. Turn and grill for an additional 2-3 minutes or until cooked through.

To make the Strawberry Quinoa Salad:

  • Place quinoa in a large bowl. Add onion, cabbage, cucumber, and strawberries; stir gently to combine.

To make the dressing:

  • Place all dressing ingredients in the work bowl of a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth.

To serve:

  • Place kebabs over Strawberry Quinoa Salad and drizzle with Dressing.
  • Garnish with peanuts and serve with a lime wedge for squeezing.
