Grilled Pineapple Mango Asian Salsa for Grilled Pork - 52 Condiments

I am LOVING Grilled Pork Chops this summer!

Most cost effective way to make them is to buy a thick pork loin, make thick slices and butterfly them. Works out to less than $2 a pound, as opposed to up to $6 a pound to buy already butterflied chops.  That extra savings means you can add some spectacular condiments free!

Like this fantastic slaw/salsa topping.  It's a little sweet... It's a little spicy (you control the heat).  It has exotic Asian flavors (an Oyster Sauce (Can use a Fish Sauce instead, whatever you have on hand).  It has some unusual ingredients... like peanuts to add texture.

But of course most of all it has an amazing taste combination.  Makes that porkchop sandwich SING!

I've already done a basic post on making grilled pork chops... Don't forget the simple brine, really makes these tender and moist and be sure to cook with a remote temperature probe.  Brining and proper temperature is the key to a fantastic result.  If you need a basic refresher, read over my Grilled Pork Chop 101 Post.

Nothing better when it all comes together... Perfectly grilled chops, moist, tender and seasoned; along with this FANTASTIC Salsa!

OK, Here's what I did...
