Pork Tenderloin Salad with Blood Orange Dressing

I wanted a main course salad that was a little different. I started thinking along the lines of nicoise, but I don’t trust the tuna over at SFW. I thought pork tenderloin might make a good substitute, so I started building a salad around that.


Pork tenderloin, cooked and sliced (I used this recipe)

mixed greens

sliced orange pepper

mandarin oranges

goat cheese

blanched green beans

blanched asparagus

red potatoes, cooked and cut into chunks

red onion, sliced

Blood orange dressing (recipe below)

Toss lettuce with dressing. Plate. Arrange vegetables and cheese.  Chill until serving, as you wait for your pork to cook.

Slice pork and top salad with some. Drizzle with a little extra dressing on top.

Blood orange dressing

Juice from a blood orange

juice from half a lemon

dijon mustard (spoonful)

honey (just a bit)


good olive oil

Whisk ingredients together.
