If you are what you eat, during the summer I’m part peach and part corn on the cob. Part margarita and part Blue Bell Ice Cream. I’m probably not what you’d call a “balanced diet.” Delicious, yes. Recommended, maybe not.

We had to work pretty furiously through our Hill Country peach haul but I was bound and determined to not waste a single bite. Next to homemade ice cream and fireworks, I’m not sure anything says summer quite like a ridiculously juicy peach.

During the summer we eat a lot of fruit + meat combos. While standard pico de gallo is tasty, replacing the tomato with a juicy peach from the Hill Country is even better.

Pork Tenderloin with Peach Salsa

Juicy pork tenderloin topped with a fresh, sweet peach salsa.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 lb pork tenderloin

  • Small handful cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Heat olive oil in a dutch oven or oven safe pan over high heat until very hot.

  4. Transfer to the oven and baked uncovered until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
