Default Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Peach Lime Salsa

This is from the South Beach Diet Taste of Summer Cookbook. It is phase 2 but if you omit the salsa, it would be phase 1.

2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin
2 large peaches, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 small red onion, minced (I chopped in mini grinder)
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh mint
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a small bowl, combine garlic, oil, and pepper to form a rough paste. Place pork in a 9- by 13-inch glass baking dish and coat with garlic paste; let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.

While pork is standing, in another small bowl combine peaches, onion, mint, lime juice, and salt.

Lightly coat a grill or grill pan with cooking spray and heat to medium-high. Grill pork 12 to 14 minutes per side, or until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 150 degrees to 155 degreesF. Transfer pork to a cutting board and let rest of 5 to 10 minutes.

Slice pork into 1/2 inch thick slices and serve warm with peach-lime salsa.

Note - I cooked this on a George Foreman grill for about 14 minutes total.

Makes 4 servings.
