Garlic and Dill Crusted Pork Tenderloin with Blistered Tomatoes, Lentils and Arugula Salad

This recipe is perfect for Spring and comes together pretty fast and with little effort. For me, a fast and easy recipe this good skyrockets to the top of my favorite list. The pork tenderloin is first coated in a paste made from pungent ingredients like garlic, lemon, and fresh dill. I think fresh dill may be my favorite herby scent! Put all these ingredients in a zip top bag and place in your fridge in the morning, then it is ready to rest on your counter for 30 minutes and roasted in the oven when you get home from work.


4 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoons minced dill

1 tablespoon lemon zest

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon olive oil (I like California Olive Ranch)

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 (1 1/2-pound) pork tenderloin
