Simple guacamole is the perfect complement to juicy pork tenderloin and crunchy slaw. To make the guacamole in advance, leave the pit in with the mashed avocado and place plastic wrap directly on the surface to prevent browning; remove the pit right before serving.

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 lb pork tenderloin
  • 8 whole grain whole wheat tortillas (6 inches/15 cm)
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Cabbage Slaw:
  • 2 1/2 cups finely shredded red cabbage
  • 1/4 cup Greek-style yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice

In bowl, mix together paprika, chili powder and coriander; rub all over pork. Line baking sheet with foil; grease foil. Add pork and bake in 400?F (200?C) oven, turning once, until juices run clear when pork is pierced and instant-read thermometer registers 160?F (71?C), about 20 minutes. Tent with foil and let stand for 10 minutes; cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices.

Cabbage Slaw: Meanwhile, toss together cabbage, yogurt, lime juice, honey, vinegar, salt and pepper. Set aside.
