Kale and spinach provide a hearty salad base for herb-seasoned pork tenderloin, tangy feta, sweet grapes, and a bright olive oil dressing. If packing your lunch for the office, assemble greens, cheese, and grapes in a large container. When ready to eat, add warmed pork and dressing, and shake salad with top on to evenly distribute dressing and ingredients.

2 cups kale
1/4 cup seedless red grapes, halved

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
Dash of salt
Dash of black pepper

How to Make Dressing:
Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, orange juice, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Refrigerate in an airtight container. Shake well before using.
