Ingredients

Pork and grilled peaches:

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lb pork tenderloin sliced into 1 1/2" thick medallions
  • 1/4 small yellow or sweet onion sliced thin
  • 2 fresh peaches peeled, cored and cut into 8 wedges each
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

Arugula Salad

  • 4 cups baby arugula rinsed and dried
  • 1/2 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 Tablespoon raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme finely chopped (stems removed)

Instructions

Grill the pork and peaches:

  • Season the pork with salt, pepper, granulated garlic and smoked paprika. Set aside
  • Heat grill pan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil.
  • Sear pork, about 2 minutes on each side, until brown and crisp. Set aside.
  • Add peaches and onions. Grill until softened and golden brown.
  • Return pork to the pan and finish cooking, 3-5 minutes. Pork should reach 145 degrees F internally, and is okay to be light pink (medium) on the inside.
  • Remove all from the grill pan and set aside to slightly cool.
  • Add arugula to the pan and saute for 1-2 minutes, until slightly wilted.

Prepare the dressing:

  • Whisk olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice & zest, raw honey and thyme until incorporated.

Assemble the salad:

  • Divide the arugula between 4 plates.
  • Top with 1/4 of the pork, peach & onion mixture.
  • Drizzle with salad dressing.
