A Favorite BBQ Side

Blueberry-Peach-Cantaloupe Salsa
Cook's notes: Blueberry-Peach- Cantaloupe Salsa is a versatile side that can be used in a variety of ways; served over pork or chicken, as an appetizer with goat cheese and crackers, or warmed Brie. Pairing cornbread with fruit salsa is another option that combines sweet and savory.
