Grilled Pork Chops with Apple-Almond Salsa

This fresh salsa for the grilled pork chops combines fragrant rosemary, crunchy almonds, and sweet and tart apples. This dish is easy to prepare and the unusual flavour combinations make it perfect for a dinner party.

1 cup (250 mL) green apple, chopped
1 cup (250 mL) red apple, chopped
1/2 cup (125 mL) red onion, diced
1/3 cup (80 mL) slivered almonds, toasted
2 tablespoons (30 mL) champagne vinegar
2 teaspoons (10 mL) rosemary, minced
1 teaspoon (5 mL) lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
8 (4-ounce) boneless centre-cut pork chops
1 tablespoon (15 mL) canola oil

In a medium-sized bowl, combine apples, onion, almonds, vinegar, rosemary, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook without moving for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until browned. Remove grilled pork chops from the pan and top with reserved apple-almond salsa.

Serves 4.
