This was a great recipe! I seasoned the pork with sea salt and ground pepper before cooking it. I also substituted pecans for walnuts as my husband doesn't care for walnuts. Then I added some goat cheese crumbles as was suggested in another review and it turned out fantastic! Read More

I had leftover tenderloin that was marinated in balsamic marinade. I substituted mixed spring greens for the spinach and crisp apple for the asian pear. My family (all adults) thought it was great. Next time I'm going to add a few goat cheese crumbles just for fun. Read More

I forgot to pick up pears so I substituted a medium apple. And had some good aged gouda around that I added at the end. I used the Maple Balsamic dressing others mentioned and made some for marinating too. A plus is that my hubby who is not a big fan of either pork or vinaigrette dressings liked it. Read More

Lacked flavor to a degree. Balsamic ruled as there was no spice added to the pork. Overall it was an agreeable dish but not 4 or 5 material. Read More

Pretty darn good! I added fresh garlic to the pork when cooking and used the Maple-Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing recipe which is a perfect combination of sweet & tangy! I also added sliced avocados Craisins and Feta. Read More

This is a very good salad to use up leftover pork tenderloin. The recipe called for pan frying/cooking the pork but I had a half loin left and it worked great in this recipe. The salad is good as written but it was missing something. After eating about half of it I added diced tomatoes diced green onion and some feta cheese. My hubby and I thought it was what the salad needed. The salad is very good as written hence my 4-star rating but when I make it again I will be adding my extras. This recipe has been sitting faceless since October 2007. Glad I could give it a face. I served this with Parmesan Crusted Dinner Rolls from AR and we had a very enjoyable meal. Read More

My family enjoyed this salad. I usually buy pre sliced tenderloins and this is a perfect recipe for them. I cook the tenderloin pieces in a little coconut oil and sprinkle a little salt pepper and granulated garlic on them while cooking. I also add diced tomato and feta cheese to the salad and top it with the maple-balsamic vinaigrette on this site. Read More
