  • Salad
  • 1 Smithfield® Garlic Herb Filet
  • 8 cups salad greens
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus
  • 1 pear cored and thinly sliced (I used Bosc, but use your favorite pear)
  • 1/2 english cucumber thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes sliced in half
  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • Salad Dressing
  • 1 8 oz . contain plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon apple juice concentrate
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Grill the Smithfield® Garlic Herb Filet. Grill until the internal temperature reaches 150 degrees, remove from the heat & allow to sit covered for at least 5 minutes. Brush the asparagus with olive and sprinkle with salt & pepper - grill them also, it will only take about 4-5 minutes to grill the asparagus - just until they are crisp & tender. Slice the pears, toss in lime juice and grill - just a couple minutes per side until you get grill marks.
  • Next assemble the salad ingredients and arrange on a large platter. Thinly slice the tomatoes, cucumber. Arrange the items on top of the salad greens and refrigerate until you're ready to eat.
  • Whisk together the salad dressing items - in a small bowl combine the yogurt, apple cider vinegar, apple juice concentrate, honey, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Add the asparagus and pear slices to the salad. Slice the meat thinly and arrange it on top of the salad. Top with Creamy Apple Cider Salad Dressing and serve!
