The impressive appearance of this entrée belies its ease, making it a perfect main dish for a dinner party or gathering. This recipe is wonderfully adaptable, boasting an array of fresh herbs that can vary with the season or your taste preferences ensuring that you can use it throughout the year. Double or triple it depending on the size of your crowd. Be sure to pat the pork dry before applying the oil and the herb mixture to ensure the loin browns nicely, and let it rest before slicing it. If you cut into it right away, you'll lose many of the flavorful juices.
