Too yummy not to share!
total is 460 calories per serving
1/2 lb pork tenderloin
1/8 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. sliced almonds, finely chopped
1 tbsp. finely shredded parmesan cheese
1/2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp hone
1 tsp Dijon mustard (I didn't use this)
1/8 tsp salt
Main dish:
preheat oven to 425, coat pork with cooking spray and sprinkle with pepper, heat a skillet over medium high eat and cook 5 min (I skipped this part and went straight to the oven)
place pork on foil-lined baking seet. cook 15 min or until internal temp is 145
whisk together remaining ingredients (I used a small food processor to get a nice consistency)
slick pork and drizzle with sauce (OH YUM)

side dish:
1/3 cup whole wheat pearled couscous
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
3 tbsp. thinly sliced fresh basil
2 tbsp. finely shredded parm
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp eevo
1/8 tsp salt

cook couscous according to package directions, drain if needed, toss with remaining ingredients.

I always make double, triple or five times the directed amount so we can have leftovers for a day or two or three. this was divine!
