When done right, combining sweet and savory flavors can result in a nice combination. One of these examples is the use of pork and certain fruits. Some of these include classic examples such as peaches and pork chops, ham and pineapple on a pizza or prosciutto and melon. This specific recipe, Pork Tenderloin with Cilantro Date Relish, smartly uses a very sweet date as a relish but is able to balance the intense sweet flavors with the use of cilantro as well as by adding a nice peppery and salty rub to the pork.
Deemed a winner by all who tried it, this recipe is a nice one to use for a Sunday dinner with family or friends. I’d recommend to add extra cilantro (as shown in the below picture) and add a few cloves of roasted garlic.
