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.

If you're not familiar with DeLallo; 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, pesto chicken kabobs, harissa lamb chops 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 and a few of my food blogging friends: Sommer from A Spicy Perspective, Lindsay from Love and Olive Oil, Ali from Gimme Some Oven, Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod and myself to host the Ultimate Al Fresco Dining Giveaway!


You could win A YEAR of SaladSavors (10 SaladSavors® 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!! If you love entertaining outdoors in the summer as much as I do, click here for a chance to win this giveaway.

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!

    1. If I make it in the oven I usually broil it so it gets browned, but you could probably cook it at 450F for about 20 minutes, use a thermometer to be sure it's ready.

    2. This was Top Chef stuff. I did the oven @ 450* for 25min, covered. Then I placed it in the broiler 5 min each side.
      My husband and I really liked it. I also liked that I had ingredients already in my cupboards.
      Thank you for the oven tip

  9. Going to have to try this, but since we're trying to use up what we have in the fridge/freezer before moving day, it's gonna have to go on pork chops. We have it so rough. :-P

  10. I love pork tenderloin. We get it at Costco and have it 2-3 times a month. I will definitely have to try the rub. Normally I put it in our deep dish baker and cook it in the microwave. It only takes 25 minutes and tastes great.

  11. Cumin is one spice that needs to make an appearance more often! In my opinion at least :). Love that stuff. :)

  19. Super tasty! We baked this at 450 for like 20 minutes I think? Then broiled on high for five on each side, came out great. Done throughout, but not over-cooked. So good!
