Grilled Pork Tenderloin Salad

Oh how I love Michael Psilakis's Grilled Pork Tenderloin Salad from Food and Wine.  He describes it as being "like pork souvlaki tossed with a salad."  Spring greens, grilled vegetables (asparagus, onions, and tomatoes), sliced grilled pork tenderloin, prosciutto di Parma, and a zingy vinaigrette - perfect!  It is a healthy and hearty main course salad.  Great sides are olives, feta cheese, pita bread, and tzatziki.  The asparagus was grown in NJ - now all I need are local tomatoes!  I am so happy that grilling season is here!  Opa!

Tzatziki Recipe
1/4 cup grated English cucumber
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint

Combine ingredients in a bowl.  Refrigerate for approx. one hour before serving. 


  1. How funny!
    We had pork tenderloin last night and I used the leftovers tonight in another dish...wish I had seen this first!

  2. I am loving this salad - I wish I had the ingredients to make this for dinner.

  3. I love the addition of grilled veggies in this salad -- they make it so hearty! My favorite are those delicious-looking onions! :)

  4. Perfect.Grilling the vegetables - tossing with tenderloin - it all adds so much. Must make my pork tenderloin so I have leftovers!

  5. What a great salad...so fresh and healthy.

  6. I really love this salad. Grilling the vegetables makes such a huge difference in flavor. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary
