Barbecue-rubbed Pork Tenderloin with Pineapple Salad

Don't you just love foods that have been grilled?  Part of the joy for me is knowing that Nate will take care of the hard (grilling) work!  When I saw this recipe in the May 2012 issue of Woman's Day, I knew we needed to try it.  I really like how easy the spice rub came together and how much flavor it added to the meal.  Fantastic!
