Pre-heat oven to 425 F.
Cut away any fatty tissue from tenderloin, then pat dry with paper towels. Rub with salt and pepper on all sides to taste.
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet. Put this over medium heat.
Next, add your pork and cook, turning occasionally, until evenly. This should take about 2 minutes per side. Once browned, scatter the seasoning blend or herbs over the pork.
Transfer pork to an oven-safe baking dish. Roast your pork for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 150 F internal temperature.
As your pork roasts, you can prepare your salsa.

Prepare all of your ingredients in the way described in the ingredients list. Slice your components to your desired size.
Combine all of the ingredients listed above in a large bowl.
If you prefer a smoother texture―more like jarred―pulse half the salsa in a food processor, then combine it with the remaining chunky half.
Cover tightly and refrigerate until ready to serve.
