Just popping in with a quick post about this super simple meal I whipped up earlier this week.
I picked up a pork tenderloin at the store last time I was there and knew I wanted to make it on the grill. I loosely followed the recipe for this marinade. By loosely I mean I used all the same ingredients but didn’t measure a darn thing. I just poured a little bit of everything into a bag, added the pork and let it sit in the fridge for about 3 hours. Turned out great 🙂
As you recall, I had some peaches hanging around from my trip to the Farmer’s Market last week. I’ve been seeing lots of recipes for nectarine salsas in my cooking magazines and I decided to whip up one of my own, using peaches.
Here’s what I did:
In a small bowl I combined peaches (peeled), avocado, tomato, red onion, the juice of one lime and a jalapeno.
I let the salsa meld while the pork was marinating and it turned out great as well! It’s super simple and has great flavor, with a kick! I knew I wanted the peaches to be the star which is why I only used a little bit of avocado and tomato but the hubby still said he thought there should be no tomato.
Grilled Pork Tenderloin w/ Rainbow Salsa
Keywords: grill entree healthy
Ingredients (Serves 4)
for the pork
- 1 pork tenderloin, seasoned and grilled as desired
for the salsa
- 2 large peaches, peeled and diced
- 1/2 an avocado, diced
- 1/2 a medium tomato, diced
- 1/4 c red onion, diced
- 1 jalapeno, minced
- juice of one lime
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
Even though I made this to go with the pork, we ended up eating some of it with some blue corn tortilla chips and it was just as delicious. We both agreed, however, that it’s super spicy. We love spicy salsa, but to really enjoy it with the pork, you might want to scale back a bit on the jalapeno 🙂
Doesn’t it just scream summer?!

Yes, this does scream summer! And in all the right ways. I actually have never cooked a pork tenderloin in my life. This would be a great way to start.
