Grilled Pork with Arugula Salad

I got this recipe from the Weight Watchers Weekly. Was delicious.

1 1/4lb pork tenderloin, sliced into 8 slices
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice, divided
1 Tbsp minced garlic
3/4 tsp salt, divided
1/2 tsp black pepper, divided
8 cups arugula
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp olive oil

Place pork between 2 sheets of wax paper & flatted with rolling pin/meat tenderizer. Place pork in ziploc bag.

Add 2 tbsp lemon juice, garlic, 1/2 tsp salt & 1/4 tsp pepper. Seal bag, shake to mix & coat. Let marinate for at least 10 minutes, but no longer than an hour.

Preheat grill pan/grill to medium-high heat. Grill pork until cooked through, flipping once.

Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine arugula, tomatoes, remaining lemon juice, vinegar, oil & remaining salt & pepper. Toss to combine.

Yields 2 pieces pork & 2 1/4 cups of salad per serving. 5pts.
