Marjoram-Rubbed Pork & Grilled Potato Salad

Marjoram-Rubbed Pork & Grilled Potato Salad

Summery and full of fresh herb flavors, this dish is as colorful as it is tasty. If you have fresh summer squash or eggplant, grill it as well and toss it into the salad. Serve with a green salad and cold lemonade.

Total Time 45 min.


  • 1 small clov garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon minced fresh marjoram, or oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 boneless pork loin chops, (8 ounces), trimmed of fat
  • 3 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 6 small red potatoes, halved
  • 1 small red bell pepper, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1 small red onion, cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 6 green olives, pitted and chopped

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat grill to high.

Step 2

Combine garlic, oil, marjoram (or oregano), salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Rub 1 teaspoon of the mixture into both sides of pork. Transfer 1 tablespoon of the mixture to a large bowl and whisk in vinegar until combined. Add potatoes, bell pepper and onion to the medium bowl; toss to coat.

Step 3

Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Reduce heat to medium and grill the potatoes, turning often, until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Thread the onion and pepper chunks onto two 10-inch skewers. Grill, turning often, until charred in spots and tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Grill the pork, turning once, 6 to 8 minutes total.

Step 4

Add the grilled vegetables to the bowl with the reserved dressing along with feta and olives; toss to coat. Serve the pork with the salad.
