Stone fruits are in season and my whole family is loving it! I can't get enough of peaches and nectarines especially, and always have a large bowl on hand. When the weather is hot, a big salad sounds amazing and I have the perfect summer dressing (or anytime really) to share with you. This salad is topped with marinated grilled Smithfield Fresh Pork Tenderloin and is super flavorful and delicious. The best part is - this meal is ready in just about 30 minutes!

The Jalapeno Honey Lime Vinaigrette is super special because it is my Great Aunt Emma's recipe. She passed away four years ago and we always think of her and remember her amazing recipes. She specialized in making carrot cake, beef stroganoff and this incredible Jalapeno Honey Lime Vinaigrette. I had to ask my mom for the recipe because I had not made it myself until now and am glad to now have the recipe to make whenever I want to.

Jalapeno Honey Lime Vinaigrette is slightly spicy, tangy and sweet all in the same bite. It goes well on any salad, tastes amazing on the fruit and makes a wonderful marinade for the Smithfield Fresh Pork Tenderloin. You can use whatever fruit you have on hand for the recipe, but if you can find stone fruits such as peaches, plums, cherries, nectarines and apricots, I highly recommend it because they taste amazing on this salad.

My whole family loved this salad and it was the perfect meal to pack up and bring to a picnic at our local park. We stored the dressing separately which worked well to keep the greens crisp. Also, you can either choose to grill the fruit or leave it fresh. Both work great!

I chose to use the Smithfield Fresh Pork Tenderloin for this recipe. I love Smithfield products because they’re all-natural, high-quality, extra tender and juicy, and I have been purchasing them for years. Pork tenderloin is a lean cut of fresh pork that cooks quickly and is delicious! It is packed with protein with 22 grams per serving. It is rich in vitamin B6, thiamin, phosphorus and niacin and a three-ounce serving has just 120 calories.

I grilled the pork tenderloin for this recipe because the char from the grill enhances the flavorful pork tenderloin, and it can be sliced, diced or cubed to speed up cooking time. Lean fresh pork cuts such as Smithfield Fresh Pork Tenderloins and Sirloins are recognized by the American Heart Association as a "heart-healthy food" which I love as an alternative to the same-old chicken or beef.
