  • 1 pork tenderloin (about 12 oz), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/3 cup Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup Filippo Berio Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried mint
  • 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
  • 4 corn tortillas (7 inch), warmed
  • 1/2 cup shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup finely diced cucumber
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup pitted Kalamata olives
  • 1/2 cup prepared tzatziki sauce
      • In large resealable bag, combine pork, 1/4 cup oil, vinegar, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, mint, salt and pepper. Marinate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.
      • Remove pork from marinade, shaking off excess; discard marinade. Heat remaining oil in large skillet set over medium-high heat; sauté pork for 5 to 6 minutes or until just cooked through.

      Tips:

      • Substitute chicken for pork if desired.
      • Alternatively, thread marinated pork on skewers; grill instead of sautéing.
      • Top tacos with finely crumbled feta cheese if desired.
