You will love this perfect summer recipe for Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Blueberry Salsa.
Hi again! It’s Sheila from Life, Love, and Good Food! I live in the south, and it’s definitely warming up down here! As soon as the weather turns nice, you’ll find us grilling on our patio three or four nights a week, not just on weekends. On weeknights, my husband and I love cooking outdoors after being cooped up in the office all day!
It gives us both a chance to head outside—hubby mans the grill and I toss together a quick side—and enjoy catching up on our day. For these weeknight grilling sessions, I like to keep it quick and simple with flavorful, healthy options. For that, this Grilled Pork Tenderloin with fresh Blueberry Salsa is perfect!
Here’s my game plan for this quick weeknight recipe.
- Start with a two-pound pork tenderloin and rub it on all sides with a clove of garlic. Brush the tenderloins all over with olive oil and a generous sprinkle of black pepper. Let this sit at room temperature for 15 minutes while you assemble the salsa and heat up the grill.
- Rinse and drain fresh blueberries and reserve one cup. Toss the rest in a food processor or blender and pulse a few times to coarsely chop the berries. Be careful not to overdo it! Chop the veggies for the salsa—red onion, red bell pepper, and jalapeno pepper. Add to the blueberries and toss to combine. You can let this set at room temperature while you cook the meat or refrigerate—your choice!
- Assemble a green salad—make it easy by using a bag of mixed greens and bottled salad dressing!
- Head outside and watch hubby man the grill and in 35 minutes, start to finish, dinner is served!
You can also try the blueberry salsa on chicken or fish or serve any leftovers with tortilla or pita chips.
