Author Notes: When the tenderloin has come off the fire and is resting, take this time to grill up some lemon and lime halves. Serve on the platter with the sliced pork. The fresh juice will help brighten up the flavor. This recipe was written by the Healthline Editorial Team: http://www.healthline.com/health-recipes/margarita-pork-tenderloin Healthline
