I did this exactly to plan except, well, overdid everything a little. It was delicious! The salsa is both sweet and spicy; sometimes it seems the celantro dominates, sometimes the pineapple, and the spice mix on the pork loin is perfect. We served this with a packaged black beans and rice kit, and the salsa was great with that too. (P.) Made for Zaar World Tour 5.
