Pork Loin w/ Mango-Chipotle Salsa

Fresh fruit salsas are a great way to dress up any meal. They add flavor with minimal calories. Mangoes are at their best in summer, juicy and full of sweetness. However, if your mangoes are tart, add a tablespoon of brown sugar.

2 pounds pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon olive oil
black pepper
2 cups mango, chopped (approx. 2-3)
1 chile chipotle, seeded and minced
¼ cup green onions, chopped
2 teaspoons fresh key lime juice
1/8 cup chopped cilantro

6 servings

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Salt and pepper the tenderloin and sear until browned on all sides. Transfer to a baking sheet.

3. Place the tenderloin in the oven for about 10-15 minutes or until done. (which for pork means 140 degrees.)

4. While the pork tenderloin is in the oven, place all the salsa ingredients into a large bowl and mix well.

5. Slice the tenderloin and top with the Mango Salsa.

Fruit-Chipotle Salsa:
Substitute 1 cup chopped pineapple for a cup on the mango.
