Grilled pork loin with chickpea salad

Pork loin and chick pea salad

Date: July 6th, 2011

Pork recipe:

  • 2.5 pound pork loin
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • cilantro
  • olive oil

Mix the olive oil with the crushed garlic and chopped cilantro and rub over the pork loin. Grill the pork loin until done and let it rest 5-10 minutes.

Chickpea salad recipe:

Time to table: 20 minutes prep for the salad, 10 minutes prep for the pork, 30 minutes cooking time for pork

Servings: 4 adults, 1 toddler

Ben: Like

Erin: Like

Annie: Like the pork, dislike the chickpea salad

Notes: I overcooked the pork on the grill, which basically ruined this for me. It still tasted good, but the meat was too dry. I was really looking forward to this too, so I was bummed out. The chickpea salad I made earlier in the day, over lunch, and it was great to have that pre-made so I could just focus on screwing up the pork.
