Pork Tenderloin with Three-Berry Salsa

My husband came home from a work meeting that had served pork with a spicy blueberry salsa. He was amazed at how tasty it was, so I came up with my own rendition without seeing or tasting what he had. It took several tries, but this is the delicious result. —Angie Phillips, Tarzana, California

Peach-Glazed Ribs

For a fruity alternative to the usual barbecue sauce for ribs, try this slightly spicy recipe at your next picnic. The peaches add just the right touch of sweetness and a lovely color to this special sauce. —Sharon Taylor, Columbia, South Carolina

Tortilla Crunch Turkey Cutlets

I was inspired to create more Southwestern-flavored foods from our travels there. This is a great way to use leftover chips and salsa. You can substitute chicken cutlets for the turkey if you like. —Lisa Varner, El Paso, Texas

Barbecue Chicken Tostadas
