Servings: Makes 4 servings.
Prep Time: 20 mins
Total Time: 1 hr
     tablespoons  olive oil
     tablespoons  white wine vinegar
    1/4  teaspoon  salt
    1/8  teaspoon  black pepper
     1-pound  pork tenderloin
    1/2  of a small  cantaloupe
    1/2  of a small  honeydew melon
     cup  yellow, red, and/or orange pear-shape tomatoes, halved or quartered
     small  red onion, halved and thinly sliced
    1/3  cup  fresh mint leaves
In a small bowl whisk together oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Brush 1 tablespoon of the oil mixture over the tenderloin. Reserve remaining oil mixture to use in the relish.
For a charcoal grill, arrange hot coals around a drip pan. Test for medium-high heat above pan. Place meat on grill rack over pan. Cover; grill for 30 to 35 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 155 degrees F. Remove meat from grill. Cover with foil and let stand 10 minutes. (The meat's temperature will rise 5 degrees F during standing.)
Meanwhile, for relish, cut either the cantaloupe or honeydew melon half into bite-size pieces. Cut remaining melon half into four wedges. In a medium bowl combine melon pieces, tomato, onion, and mint. Add reserved oil mixture; toss to coat.
Slice pork diagonally. Serve with relish spooned over melon wedges. Makes 4 servings.
