Grilled Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin

Summer parties and dining al fresco doesn’t get more convenient than this – lean pork tenderloin seasoned with a quick, flavorful rub then grilled to perfection served with the easiest salad ever!!

I love having my friends over in the summer for BBQs, but I don’t love spending hours in the kitchen. Instead I prefer to keep things simple so I can actually enjoy my company, which is why I love these new DeLallo SaladSavors.[1]

If you’re not familiar with DeLallo[2]; I first discovered them last year. They are the only brand of whole wheat pasta my family will actually eat,
but they sell tons of other quality ingredients like olive oils, vinegars, olives, roasted peppers, marinated artichokes and more. So it only makes sense that they took
those ingredients and conveniently packaged them to create quick and
easy salads – all you do is add the lettuce!

Whatever you throw on the grill; whether it’s pork tenderloin, shrimp kabobs[3], pesto chicken kabobs[4], harissa lamb chops[5] or even just burgers – making a salad with one of these salad toppings takes minutes to put together – EASY!

These are brand spanking new so at the moment they’re only available in select supermarkets, but I’m sure you’ll be seeing them everywhere soon! And here’s the BEST news – I’ve partnered with DeLallo Foods[6] and a few of my food blogging friends: Sommer from A Spicy Perspective[7], Lindsay from Love and Olive Oil[8], Ali from Gimme Some Oven[9], Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod[10] and myself to host the Ultimate Al Fresco Dining Giveaway[11]!

You could win A YEAR of SaladSavors[12] (10 SaladSavors®[13] sent monthly), plus tons of stuff from Crate & Barrel and West Elm: a beautiful patio set, a salad bowl, platter, serving tub, flatware serving set and more!!

And back to the pork tenderloin – it’s super lean, a serving is under 175 calories (4 points plus) and is gluten-free, clean, paleo-friendly, & takes 25 minutes to make. You can easily double the recipe to serve more. Enjoy!
