Take advantage of seasonal produce and pair this mouth-watering salsa sweet-and-savory salsa with pork chops. It would also be great over chicken or fish. For a more intensely flavored salsa, grill the peaches, bell pepper, and onion along side the pork chop before chopping and mixing them together for the salsa.

    This is a great way to have pork chops! Of course, we have a picky-eater in the family; the peaches were changed to canned pineapple and the V&O omitted. Freshly-made salsa is so worth it. The salsa gives back moisture lost in the grilling process. I didn't realize how important it is to have grill lines; I can't stress this enough. I used my first ever grill pan (12") on an electric cooktop -- wonderful and so easy. This was our whole meal!
