3 small sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 lb.)
2 teaspoons olive oil

1 (2-lb.) package pork tenderloin

1. Preheat oven to 450°. Peel sweet potatoes, and cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges; toss with oil, allspice, red pepper, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Arrange potato wedges in a single layer on a lightly greased jelly-roll pan.

3. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high). Sprinkle pork with 1/2 tsp. Black pepper and remaining 1 tsp. salt. Grill pork, covered with grill lid, 6 to 8 minutes on all sides or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 150° to 155°. Remove pork from grill, and let stand 10 minutes. Cut diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices.

4. Toss together greens and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl; transfer to a serving platter, and top with sliced pork and sweet potatoes. Serve with Raspberry Salad Dressing.
