Reviews for Pork Chops with Mango Salsa
"Only made the salsa to go with jerk chicken. It was very good. I will make it again."
"The husband who NEVER says "it's good" raved over this. Used red onion and added a wee bit of cilantro to the salsa! Good Stuff my hubby says!!"
"This was so good and really easy to make. I served with black beans and grilled veggies."
"Prepared this on several occasions an it's top rate. Serve over rice (brown or white) with a salad side. 'Good Eats.' ;>)"
"Instead of grilling, I put these in the oven for an hour with the marinade. My guests were very complimentary and said the pork was juicy. If you haven't ever worked with mango before, find cutting tips before beginning."
