Crisp Apple Tacos put a fresh spin on a dinnertime classic. Children can help with the prep by mixing the dressing, apple sticks and cabbage for the tasty slaw.


  • ½ pound pork tenderloin
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus extra, to taste, divided
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, plus extra, to taste, divided
  • 2 crisp apples, divided
  • 3 sprigs rosemary
  • ½ cup shredded carrots
  • ½ cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded green cabbage
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 12 soft taco shells
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream

  1. Cut pork crosswise into 1-inch medallions. Coat pork medallions with olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper, then add to a saucepan over medium heat.

  2. Slice half of one apple into thick wedges and add to saucepan. Slice the remaining half into thin wedges and set aside.
