Dressing ideas pork tenderloin salad?

I picked up a lovely pork tenderloin tonight and plan to use it in a salad - sliced and on top. Any ideas for a good dressing/vinaigrette?

  1. Something with cider.

    1. citrus and ginger, with mandarin sections and sliced, toasted almonds.


        I have made this recipe many times; if you don't want to follow it exactly you could make just the vinaigrette, incorporate some of the salad ingredients into yours, etc. It really is an exceptional recipe.

        1. I immediately though of Cuban Pork Mojo, and looked up a recipe for this dressing. (adapted from this link):

          Cuban Mojo Dressing:

          1 heaping tsp. cumin seed (whole seed, not ground), dry toasted
          2-4 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
          1 jalapeno or Serrano chili, seeded and deveined, coarsely chopped
          1/2 tsp. Salt
          1 lemon, juiced (about 2 Tbsp. juice).
          2 tsp. neutral vegetable or olive oil (I might use more oil than this….
          )2 oranges, juiced (about 1 C. juice).
          1 lime, juiced (about 2 tsp. of juice).
          1 tsp. honey (or to taste).
          1 tsp. soy sauce

          Chopped fresh cilantro to taste
          Chopped fresh parsley to taste

          Blenderize. (You might use a tomatillo, too).

          Classic Ginger-Garlic-Soy


          A Chimichurri-based dressing. Love me some chimichurri.

          1. Reduced Modena balsamic vinegar, nothing else. Just the rich glaze drizzled over the top.

            This is a brand I just picked up from Costco. Very tasty.
