Author Notes: I was making pork tacos and thought they looked so thin and sad without some nice summer tomatoes. I looked around the kitchen. I had a big bag of clementines on the counter and olives in the fridge. I figured that would make a perfect winter substitution. The olives, citrus, and pork are a great combination and I don't miss the tomatoes at all. - leigh frat
