Grilled Pork Tenderloin & Apricot Salad

This grilled pork dish offers a triple hit of the fruit with an apricot preserve glaze for the tenderloin plus a grilled apricot and watercress salad with an apricot-spiked vinaigrette. Serve with grilled whole-grain country bread and a chilled Chardonnay, which will harmonize beautifully with the smoky-sweetness of grilled apricots.

Serves 4

Prep Time 40 min

Total Time 40 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound pork tenderloin,, trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus more to taste
  • 3 tablespoon apricot preserves, divided
  • 4 ripe but firm fresh apricots or nectarines, halved and pitted
  • 2 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 2 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 4- to 5-ou watercress, or baby arugula (about 8 cups)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat grill to high.

Step 2

Sprinkle pork with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the pork, turning occasionally, for 10 minutes. Brush the pork with 2 tablespoons preserves and continue grilling until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 145°F, 2 to 5 minutes more. Grill apricot (or nectarine) halves on the coolest part of the grill, turning occasionally, until tender and marked, about 4 minutes. Transfer the pork and apricots to a clean cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 1 tablespoon preserves, vinegar, shallot, oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Cut the fruit into wedges and add to the dressing along with watercress (or arugula); toss to coat. Thinly slice the pork. Serve the salad with the sliced pork.
