Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Black Olive and Orange Salsa

Butterflied a small pork tenderloin, rubbed it with fresh minced garlic, salt and pepper and tossed it on the grill, along with some sliced potatoes. 

While the pork cooked, I made a salsa to serve with it -  Chopped Kalamata Olives, garlic, green onions, sweet red pepper, cilantro, orange zest and orange segments, salt, pepper and a little squeeze of orange juice.

I don't normally like "sweet" with my meats, but the red pepper and the orange gave the salsa a subtle sweetness which  really complimented the pork.  

Grilled slices of russet potato is my new favourite.  Crinkle cut, brushed with olive oil sprinkled with salt and pepper and grilled , turning once or twice until potatoes are tender. 

Another quick and easy "after work" dinner.


  1. What an awesome looking dinner...gorgeous Ann!

  2. That salsa sounds wonderful.

  3. I just picked up a couple of small pork tenderloins and was wondering what to make with them - how handy!! LOL

    Also, made your crab and spinach terrine for our sit down starter at our dinner club last night and it was a huge hit! Thanks Ann!


  4. It may be quick and easy, but it couldn't be more delicious. Your grilled potatoes are a favorite here too.

  5. I just bought a pork tenderloin and wanted to grill it, but wasn't sure about anything else....this clinches it! I have never grilled potato slices. These look healthy and delicious. Thanks!!
