1 (2-lb.) package pork tenderloins
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons Caribbean jerk seasoning
2 cups fresh blueberries
1 (8-oz.) can pineapple tidbits in juice, drained
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup mango chutney
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper


1. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Remove silver skin from tenderloins, leaving a thin layer of fat. Brush pork with olive oil, and sprinkle with jerk seasoning.

2. Grill pork, covered with grill lid, 10 to 12 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 145°. Remove from grill, and let stand 5 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, coarsely chop 1 cup blueberries. Toss together remaining whole blueberries, chopped berries, and next 7 ingredients. Slice pork, and serve with blueberry salsa.
