1 medium pork tenderloin

4 Tbsp olive oil

zest and juice of 1/2 lemon

2 large cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp dried oregano

salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Nachos

3 cups pita chips

cooked pork tenderloin, chopped

½ pint grape tomatoes, halved

¼ cucumber, seeded and chopped

¼ cup kalamata olives, sliced

1 Tbsp olive oil

lemon juice

salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Sauce (adapted from Mark Bittman)

4 oz feta cheese

½ cup plain Greek yogurt

1 Tbsp dried oregano

1 lemon

salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Pork Tenderloin

1. Combine lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and oregano in a large resealable plastic bag. Place tenderloin in the bag and seal. Set aside to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

2. Preheat oven to 425°F (220ºC). Brush marinade off of tenderloin, but do not rinse. In large non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat and brown pork on all sides. Transfer to a foil-lined baking sheet and bake until just a hint of pink remains inside, about 10 minutes. Transfer to cutting board, let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.

Nachos

1. Heat oven to 350°F (180ºC). Arrange pita chips on a baking sheet and brush or drizzle with a tablespoon or two of olive oil. Warm for about 5 minutes.

2. Combine tomatoes, cucumber, olives with olive oil and season with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Sauce (adapted from Mark Bittman)

1. Meanwhile, in a blender or food processor, combine feta, yogurt, 1/4 cup olive oil, mint and zest and juice of lemon; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Blend or process until smooth.

2. Arrange chips on a serving plate and top with sauce, chopped tenderloin and tomato mixture and serve.
