  • To make the salsa, place the nectarines, tomato, onion, cilantro, lime juice, and red pepper flakes in a bowl; toss to blend. Season to taste with salt. Cover, and refrigerate 30 minutes to blend flavors.

  • Stir the cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl. Place the olive oil in a small bowl. Brush the pork chops with oil, and season both sides evenly with the cumin mixture.

  • Place pork loin chops on the preheated grill. Cook until lightly browned and juices run clear, about 4 minutes on each side. Place pork chops on serving plates, and top with a generous spoonful of salsa.

This was a refreshing summer meal! I would suggest though that if you're going to keep some for leftovers to not use nectarines that are too ripe. Read More

Adobo seasoning will work better for the chops. The nectarine salsa sounds better that what it turns out to be. Read More

Wow! The nectarine salsa is delicious - wouldn't change a thing! I used half the amount of pork and cut into cubes to make kabobs. I added some paprika to the rub and let it marinate about 6 hours. Great meal! Read More

This was a great and easy way to use pork. I replaced the tomato with an equal amount of canned pineapple tidbits and probably doubled up on the pork rub but otherwise made the recipe exactly as stated. Read More

This is a great recipe - the salsa has an awesome flavour and I wouldn't change a thing. I think the recipe does need the fresh cilantro to ensure it has the complex flavour of fruit salsas. I can't wait to try the leftovers on grilled chicken. YUM! Read More

Very good recipe. I used peaches instead of nectarines and it still was good. I added a bit of sugar to cut the acidity of the lime juice. Read More

YUMMY!!! My husband and I loved these! Don't leave any ingredients out it is perfect! I am not an onion fan but I think if I hadn't used it it wouldn't have been near as good. I love the cilantro it gives it a fresh taste! I would recommend this to everyone! It is pretty easy and delicious! Read More

My husband and I loved this recipe! Nice and refreshing for a summer night. I would use nectarines and tomatoes that were a bit more ripe next time for added sweetness. Read More
