3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 1/2 cups (1/4-inch-thick) slices onion
2 garlic cloves, crushed
3 (1-pound) pork tenderloins, trimmed
1 teaspoon salt
Cooking spray
5 cups quartered strawberries (about 2 quarts)

To prepare pork, combine first 4 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add pork; seal and marinate in refrigerator 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.

Prepare grill.

Remove pork from bag; discard marinade. Sprinkle pork evenly with 1 teaspoon salt. Place pork on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 20 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning occasionally. Let stand 10 minutes; slice.

To prepare the salsa, combine strawberries and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl; toss gently. Serve immediately with pork.
