Grilled Pork Chops with 2 Melon Salsa

 David Bonom, Cooking Light, JULY 2010



  • Salsa:
  • 1  cup  chopped seedless watermelon
  • 1  cup  chopped honeydew melon
  • 3  tablespoons  finely chopped sweet onion
  • 1  tablespoon  finely chopped jalapeƱo pepper
  • 1  tablespoon  chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1  tablespoon  fresh lime juice
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt

  • Pork chops:
  • 2  teaspoons  canola oil
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  chili powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  garlic powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 4  (4-ounce) boneless center-cut pork chops, trimmed
  • Cooking spray


1. To prepare salsa, combine the first 7 ingredients; set aside.
2. To prepare pork chops, heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Combine oil and next 4 ingredients (through black pepper) in a small bowl. Rub oil mixture over both sides of pork chops. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with salsa.

This was fabulous. We would have given this more than 5 spoons. The mix of oil, spice, sweet melon and cilantro was just out of this world. I had to talk the kids into trying the salsa - they weren't as big fans as Hubby and I - but they did eat it.
