Roasted Pork and Black-Eyed Pea Salad

This recipe is sure to impress and it is quite simple. I've never been a huge fan of pork but this is such an easy way to server up a good meal.

Serves 4 | Prep time: 20 minutes | Total time: 45 minutes

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a small bowl, combine paprika, thyme, cayenne, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; set spice mixture aside.
Place pork on a rimmed baking sheet; rub with oil. Sprinkle all over with spice mixture, patting in gently. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of meat registers 150 degrees. 20 to 25 minutes; let cool.
