What do you do when your house is overflowing with mangoes?!? Well, you find any way to eat them and make them a part of your meals! I was inspired to make pork chops more lively with a mango salsa on top. I looked up a few recipes and decided to use the main ingredients but make it my own with what I had available at home.
Here’s what I used for the salsa:
- 1/4 large onion
- 1/2 tomato
- mango (you want them ripe but not too mushy so they’re easier to chop)
- fresh mint (cilantro would be a nice substitute also)
- olive oil
- fresh lime juice
I seasoned the pork chops with:
- pomegranate sauce (usually found in Mediterranean food markets)
- garlic powder
- freshly ground pepper
- cayenne pepper (just a couple of dashes)
I served the pork chops with a simple side salad of romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt & pepper, & lime juice.
Bon Appetit! 🙂
