Pork. The other white meat. Indeed. I have been trying to incorporate summer into every meal lately and what better way than to grab some fresh fruit, roll out the grill, turn up the heat and grill some meat! I am a sweet person and my husband is definitely salty. This dish incorporates the best of both worlds and allows us both to be satisfied at the picnic table. Who ever said grilling had to be hamburgers and hot dogs? You can whip up a tasty, healthy, fruitful meal all on the grill in 5 minutes and leave everyone wondering how you found the time.

We REALLY enjoyed the sweet and savory flavors of this recipe. Pair with roasted asparagus and potatoes for a meal not soon forgotten.
