My husband came home from a work meeting that had served pork with a spicy blueberry salsa. He was amazed at how tasty it was, so I came up with my own rendition without seeing or tasting what he had. It took several tries, but this is the delicious result. —Angie Phillips, Tarzana, California

  • 1-1/4 cups fresh or frozen blackberries (about 6 ounces), thawed and drained
  • 1-1/4 cups fresh or frozen raspberries (about 6 ounces), thawed and drained
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (about 6 ounces), thawed
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • PORK:
  • 2 pork tenderloins (3/4 pound each), cut into 3/4-inch slices
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock


  1. Place the first five ingredients in a bowl; toss lightly to combine. Reserve 1 cup berry mixture for sauce. For salsa, gently stir onion, lime juice, cilantro and salt into remaining mixture; let stand 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add half of the pork and cook 2-4 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°. Remove from pan. Repeat with remaining pork and oil.
  3. In same pan, add wine, shallots and reserved berry mixture, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Bring to a boil; cook 4-6 minutes or until liquid is reduced to 1 tablespoon. Stir in stock; cook 5 minutes longer or until shallots are tender, stirring occasionally. Return pork to pan; heat through. Serve with salsa. Yield: 6 servings.

"This recipe was good, but not as exceptional as I thought it might be. Just didn't have the wow factor I was looking for. I substituted strawberries for the raspberries because that is what I had on hand, but I do not think that would have made that much of a difference. Not everyone wanted the salsa on top, so I ate the extra with chips the next day!"
