      Hi, Ninnnett. The salsa that goes with the tenderloins is the second recipe listed in the article. I have consolidated that portion of the recipe for you here:

      Pineapple & Cucumber Salsa

      1 20 oz can pineapple tidbits, drained
      1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
      2 Tbs rice vinegar
      2 Tbs olive oil
      1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
      1 jalapeño pepper, diced and seeded (use gloves when handling pepper)
      1 Tbs black pepper, coarsely ground
      4 Tbs cilantro, finely chopped


      In medium bowl, stir together pineapple tidbits, cucumber, rice vinegar, olive oil, cayenne pepper, jalapeño pepper (use rubber gloves when handling pepper), black pepper, and cilantro. Cover and let rest at room temperature for an hour to let flavors blend. Refrigerate for longer storage; bring to room temperature before serving. Makes 3 cups.

      Hope this helps! ~Zachary
