Wash produce before use

1

Make the tomato-celery salad

  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Cut the celery on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.

In a medium bowl, toss together the tomatoes, celery, parsley, sherry vinegar, celery seeds, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

2

Prep and cook the pork

  • Pat the pork dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, turning frequently, until browned but still faintly pink within, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Pour off any excess oil from the pan. While the pork is resting, prepare the apricot mostarda.

3

Make the apricot mostarda

  • Thinly slice the dried apricots.

In the same pan used for the pork, add the apricots, mostarda base, and ½ cup [1 cup] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until the sauce starts to thicken, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] butter (from your pantry), if desired, and stir or whisk until melted and the sauce thickens. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the pork to individual plates and drizzle with the apricot mostarda. Serve the tomato-celery salad alongside.
