For the salsa:

  • 2 medium plums halved and pitted
  • 1 cup cherries pitted and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime juiced
  • salt and black pepper to taste

For the pork chops:

  • 1 tablespoon oil for the grill
  • 4 pork loin chops about 1" thick
  • 2 teaspoons Badia seasoning
  • salt and black pepper to taste


  • Preheat the grill to medium and brush the grill grates with the oil.
  • Place the plums cut side down on the hot grill and cook about 3 minutes per side or until softened and charred. Remove from the grill and allow to cool. When the plums are cool enough to handle, remove the peel and chop into 1/2" chunks and place in a small bowl. Add the cherries, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and black pepper, to taste. Set aside to let the flavors meld while the pork chops cook.
  • Season both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper, followed by a generous amount of the Badia seasoning on both sides.
  • Place the pork chops on the grill and cook 4-5 minutes per side, or until a thermometer reads 150 degrees when inserted into the thickest part of the chops. Remove from heat, cover loosely with foil, and allow to rest about 8-10 minutes.
  • Serve the pork chops warm topped with salsa. Enjoy!


  • I have a handy cherry pitter that I use to make pitting my cherries so much easier!
  • You don't have to peel the plums, because once they're grilled, the peels slip right off.
