I made this in Spring, with strawberries from our local strawberry patch, using it on pork tenderloin. It is the bomb! My husband said that this recipe has the perfect blend of flavors, and it's true. The strawberries and dried cranberries are sweet/tart, the red pepper flakes add heat, and the avocado is cool and creamy. Don't pass this recipe by!

I served this for Easter with a smoked pork loin as pictured. I couldn't find dried cranberries so I rinsed and drained whole cranberry sauce. I'll definitely make it again with a little less cilantro.
