Pork Fattoush

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic

3/4 teaspoon salt, divided

1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 3/4-inch cubes

2 (7-inch) pitas

3 cups chopped tomato

1/2 cup chopped green onions

1/3 cup chopped fresh mint

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 cucumber, peeled, quartered lengthwise, and sliced into 1/4-inch pieces

1 (7-ounce) bottle roasted red bell peppers, drained and chopped

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Combine garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pork, tossing well to coat. Let stand 5 minutes. Arrange pitas in a single layer directly on oven rack. Bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes or until crisp; transfer to a wire rack. While pitas bake, add pork mixture to pan; cook 5 minutes or until done, stirring frequently. Place pork mixture in a large bowl. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, tomato, onions, mint, vinegar, juice, cucumber, and peppers. Break the toasted pita bread into bite-sized pieces. Add pita pieces to pork mixture; toss to combine.
