    This was a great recipe! I seasoned the pork with sea salt and ground pepper before cooking it. I also substituted pecans for walnuts as my husband doesn't care for walnuts. Then I added some goat cheese crumbles as was suggested in another review and it turned out fantastic!  -  13 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I had leftover tenderloin that was marinated in balsamic marinade. I substituted mixed spring greens for the spinach and crisp apple for the asian pear. My family (all adults) thought it was great. Next time, I'm going to add a few goat cheese crumbles just for fun.  -  29 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I forgot to pick up pears so I substituted a medium apple. And had some good aged gouda around that I added at the end. I used the Maple Balsamic dressing others mentioned and made some for marinating too. A plus is that my hubby who is not a big fan of either pork or vinaigrette dressings liked it.  -  06 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
