New Zealand may be far away but their flavors, like the kiwi, are quite near. This meal has you bringing out the grill for a fresh summer taste with some fantastic fruits. The kiwi-pineapple salsa pairs perfectly with tender pork medallions, melding salty pork with sweet. On the side, a salad of corn and pepitas for perfect light eating. Eat this while dreaming of Middle Earth vistas, oh so far away.

    Halve kiwi and scoop flesh out with a spoon. Cut into ½" dice. Cut pineapple into ½" dice. Zest lime, halve, and juice. Mince cilantro (no need to stem). Shuck corn and rinse. Hold romaine heart at root end and chop coarsely. Pat pork tenderloin dry. On a separate cutting board, slice tenderloin into medallions, ½"-¾" thick.

    Grill the Corn and Pork

    Spray grill or grill pan with cooking spray. Add corn to hot grill and cook until lightly charred, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add pork to grill and cook until browned and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-4 minutes per side. If your grill has enough room, feel free to cook corn and pork at the same time. Transfer to a plate and rest 5 minutes. While pork rests, toss salad.

  • Step 5 - Toss the Salad
