Apple Salsa

Combine all ingredients for salsa in a bowl and mix well. Cover and refrigerate several hours to meld flavours. Place pork in shallow pan and pour marinade over. Cover and refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours; turn occasionally. Makes 2-1/2 cups (625 mL).

Pork Wraps

When ready to serve, drain pork, reserving excess marinade. Place pork on rack in shallow roasting pan and brush with reserved marinade. Bake at 375ºF (190ºC) for 30 minutes or until 160ºF (71ºC) in centre. Wrap tortillas tightly in foil and heat in 350ºF (180ºC) oven for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cut pork diagonally across grain into thin slices. Arrange one-eighth of slices and 2 or 3 tablespoons (30 or 45 mL) salsa in centre of each tortilla. Fold bottom half of tortilla over filling and overlap sides on top. Arrange on serving plate.

Fajita Marinade

Combine 15 mL (1 tbsp) vegetable oil; 2 tablespoons water; 30 mL (2 tbsp) fresh lime juice; 3 large cloves garlic, finely minced; 10 mL (2 tsp) minced fresh cilantro leaves; and 1 mL (1/4 tsp) red pepper flakes in small bowl and mix well.
