Cherry, Cashew Butter, and Pork Tenderloin Sandwich

Photo: Rachel Johnson

Use up leftover pork tenderloin and caramelized onions from last night's dinner for this easy no-cook sandwich. It's easy to put together at your desk or stack up several sammies while your crew is headed out the door for practice. Serve with a simple salad or a bowl of fruit to round out the meal.

It's time to think differently about nut butter sandwiches. Sure, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a time-saving stand-by, but the bread aisle is bursting with so many new varieties of spreads and nut butters. It's hard not to buy a jar of each and start experimenting. That's exactly what we did, actually, and from those taste tests, we created fun and tasty nut butter sandwiches that will make lunches (or quick dinners) anything but boring. Start with 2 (1-ounce) slices of whole-grain bread; pile on the goods.

Cherry, Cashew Butter, and Pork Tenderloin Sandwich

Dried cherries are a natural partner for the lean pork tenderloin, but feel free to use dried cranberries or even cherry preserves if you can't find dried cherries. Peppery arugula is a great contrast to the sweet fruit, but we also like crunch Bibb or leafy Butter lettuces.
