Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Green Tomato-Pineapple Salsa

A basic grilled pork tenderloin becomes “company worthy” when paired with a tangy-sweet salsa of green tomatoes and fresh pineapple.

  • Yield: Serves 8
  • Cook time:45 Minutes
  • Prep time:20 Minutes
  • Cost Per Serving:$2.05


  • 4 medium green tomatoes (about 1 lb.), cored and chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 fresh pineapple, cored, cut into 1/4-inch dice (about 2 cups)
  • 2 whole pork tenderloins (about 1 1/2 lb. each)
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper


1. Combine tomatoes, onion, lemon juice and olive oil in a large bowl. Stir in pineapple, cover and chill until ready to serve. (Can be made up to 1 day ahead. Keep covered and refrigerated.) Makes about 4 cups.

2. Preheat a gas grill to medium-low. Make small incisions all over tenderloins with a sharp paring knife and insert slices of garlic until well studded. Season with salt and pepper. Oil grates and grill pork, turning often, until a meat thermometer inserted at thickest part of tenderloin reaches 160°F and tenderloin is lightly browned on outside and shows no pink color inside, about 45 minutes. Remove pork to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes.

3. Season green tomato-pineapple salsa with salt and pepper. Serve cold with thin slices of pork.
