Pork with Watermelon Salsa Recipe

A colorful combination of watermelon, strawberries, kiwifruit and peaches makes a sweet salsa that's ideal to serve alongside grilled pork basted with peach preserves.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Grill: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 cup seeded chopped watermelon
  • 1/2 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped kiwifruit
  • 1/4 cup chopped peaches
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 1 to 2 mint leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 cup peach preserves
  • 3 pork tenderloins (3/4 pound each)


  • 1. For salsa, in a small bowl, combine the fruit, lime juice, honey, lime peel and mint; set aside. In a saucepan or microwave, heat the preserves for 1 minute.
  • 2. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Prepare grill for indirect heat using a drip pan. Place pork over drip pan and grill, covered, over indirect medium-hot heat for 15 minutes. Turn; brush with some of the preserves. Grill 10-15 minutes longer or until juices run clear and a thermometer reads 160°, basting occasionally with preserves. Serve with salsa. Yield: 6 servings (2 cups salsa).
