Pork Chops with Nectarine Salsa

My special pork dish has so much flavor and is a snap to prepare. A sweet, fruity salsa perfectly balances the spicy rub coating the pan-fried chops. —Bonnie Bufford, Nicholson, Pennsylvania

    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.
