Citrus Thyme Pork Tenderloin and Winter Citrus Salad with Marie’s Dressing

by | Nov 15, 2018 | Collaboration, Main Dish, Salads

I’m excited to partner with Marie’s Dressing today to bring you two new recipes for the holiday season. I created this Citrus Thyme pork tenderloin and Winter Citrus salad using their delicious dressings.

Using Marie’s Caesar dressing for the pork tenderloin marinade base ensures a moist and tender dish every time. The addition of fresh squeezed orange juice, orange zest, Sauvignon Blanc with fresh chopped garlic and thyme add amazing fresh, flavor.

To carry through the fresh, winter citrus theme, I dressed tender butter lettuce with Marie’s Creamy Ranch mixed with fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and fresh cracked black pepper. After gently tossing the greens with the dressing mixture, I placed them on a platter and topped with a generous amount of grapefruit sections. You could also use Mandarin oranges, blood oranges or your other favorite winter citrus or combination of all of these.

I hope you’ll try these quick and delicious recipes this holiday season.  You can locate Marie’s Dressing nearest you here.
