"When my son and his wife were married in our backyard, I served this special roast at the rehearsal dinner," writes B.J. Wall from Lanexa, Virginia. "It can be prepared on the grill or in the oven, but grilling enhances the flavors. The fruit salsa perfectly complements the pork's tasty herbal rub."

"This was delicious! My husband and I really don't care for mango, but it was awesome in this salsa. We had extra salsa and ate it on ham steak."
