Sweet Cherry Salsa Pork Chops

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by oldbern

I found this recipe in an article about the benefits of cherries in a summer edition of First magazine. The article outlined that cherries can aid a person with maintaining low blood pressure, a flat belly, ending headaches, and having radiant skin.

The cherry salsa added a very nice cool and tangy element to the chops. I chose to bake my chops though, instead of pan frying, which was only personal preference. I would like to try this recipe again on a hot summer night when cooler dishes seem to be the order of the day. Thanks for sharing your recipe, xxciv. Made for Spring 2010 Pick-A-Chef.
