This special pork dish from Bonnie Bufford of Nicholson, Pennsylvania has a zesty flair and is a snap to prepare. A sweet fruity salsa balances perfectly with the spicy rub that coats the pan-fried chops.

"While my husband and I really enjoyed these chops, my children were less enthralled with the nectarine (or peach in our case) salsa. I really liked the change of pace flavor and it was a really quick recipe to make. Unfortunately, I probably won't be making this again."
