Just saying citrus grilled pork tenderloin makes your mouth water. The tenderloin is one of the leanest and tenderest cuts of meat you can buy. But even with this fabulous cut of meat, marinating will make a good thing better. Even the short dip in the marinade that this recipe calls for will make the meat more juicy and flavorful. Grilling in the sun? Orange zest contains limonene, a chemical that may protect against skin cancer. Lemon zest has lots of calcium and vitamin C for bone health. Lime zest contains antioxidants that slow down the buildup of plaque on artery walls. Healthy and delicious! Sounds like the start to a great summer grill party!
