I liked the sound of this recipe, but three minor changes: One - I like to grill the chops, Two - I slightly increased the balsamic to two TBL spoons. Three - vine ripe tomatoes are available and I used local tomatoes. The salsa/chutney style of toping to the chops was flavorful and one I will keep in my cookbook. Thank you
