From light and delicate to lush and unctuous, this dry European white has been gaining in popularity recently as a lively yet smoothly textured option behind such favorites as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Flavor Descriptors

Although the intensity of flavors will vary depending on where it is produced, Pinot Gris can offer a range of fruit flavors including melon, peach, apricot, and pear. Typically quite floral and expressive, other trademarks are mild baking spice aromatics, subtle minerality, and a creamy lanolin-like texture. Pinot Gris is generally not oaked.

      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

      Directions

      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
