Better than anticipated - really enjoyed the salsa.  The chops were pretty average - still good, quick, and easy.  Will make again.

This was a good summer recipe. I made the salsa ahead of time and then it only took about 10-15 min after work to cook the pork chops on the grill. Will definitely make again.

This was refreshing and delicious on a hot summer day. The Salsa was so good I've been making it separately for chips.

My family enjoyed this recipe but agreed the salsa was a little bland - so, I added 1 T of honey which perked it up. I served it with grilled salmon and steamed asparagus. Next time I'll try it with the pork chops.

This meal is pretty good, not sure if I would spend the extra money for the watermelon and honeydew again. The pork chops were tasty. I served it with bread with melted jalapeno-jack cheese.

I was a little afraid of the salsa recipe (onions, jalepenos & melon?!), but OMG this salsa combined with the pork chops; delicious! I rounded out the meal with brown rice cooked in low sodium chicken broth (as another reviewer did). Next time I'll use a little thicker cut boneless pork chop.
