Prep: 0:15 Mins
Cook: 0:10 Mins


  • 200g fresh cherries, pitted, sliced
  • 1 French shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 long fresh green chilli, deseeded, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 bunch watercress, leaves picked
  • 2 Lebanese cucumbers, peeled into ribbons
  • 150g sugar snap peas, halved

Step 1
Combine the cherry, shallot, chilli, 1 tsp lime juice and 2 tsp olive oil in a bowl. Season. Toss to combine. Set aside.

Step 2
Combine the chipotle sauce, remaining lime juice and olive oil in a small bowl. Brush half the chipotle mixture over the pork. Season.
