    Sounds yummy! Did you mean the title “Marinade” listing fruity ingredients that can be made early on serving day read, “Fruit Salsa?”

    Question…probably dumb, but I don’t know the answer. Can lemon juice be substituted for lime? I think it should but not sure since sometimes you sue things for the acid and sometimes for the bitter (lime) or the sour/tart (lemon). I don’t like bitter so I don’t like limes, but I love lemons.

    We always have pork tenderloin in the freezer. This looks really delicious, and I can gril the tenderloin in my new cast iron grill pan that I got for Christmas. My family thought I was weird asking for the cast iron grill pan, but I love it and have used it a lot, and I would never have bought it for myself.
