Grilled Pork Chops with Ginger-Nectarine Salsa

I saw this recipe in the current issue of Cooking Light and knew it was going to be great. I ended up making it a few days later than I had originally planned on, so the fruit got extra ripe and delicious. I grilled some bone-in pork chops on my cast iron grill pan - simply seasoned with salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. This salsa on top was a super refreshing and delicious counterpart to the moist pork. I'll definitely be making this again and again!
