Feta & Pine Nut Gremolata

Gremolata or gremolada is a chopped herb condiment typically made of lemon zest, garlic, and parsley.  I used this on top of a pork tenderloin for a Greek inspired dinner. 
  • zest of two lemons
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 c fresh parsley leaves, chopped
  • 4 oz fresh Feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 c toasted pine nuts
  1. In a food processor, pulse the  zest, parsley & garlic until finely minced. 
  2. Add Feta and pulse a couple times just until well-combined. Remove to a bowl and stir in pine nuts.

Served over a just-out-of-the-oven  pork tenderloin, the gremolata should melt over your meat, leaving a creamy sauce.
Served over pasta would be nice too.
