Dressing ideas pork tenderloin salad?

fldhkybnva Apr 6, 2013 01:25 AM

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?

    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.

      I immediately though of Cuban Pork Mojo, and looked up a recipe for this dressing. (adapted from this link): http://www.slimgenics.com/kimk_recipe...

      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).

        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.
