Grilled Pork Chops with Grilled Pineapple

This recipe from our friend Chef Jackie Page of Jackie Kennedy Catering comes together quickly and saves you from heating up the kitchen on a hot summer day.

Using your grill to cook pork chops makes short work of the task. But keep in mind that when grilling pork it is always a good idea to choose chops with a little fat on them in order to yield a more tender and juicy result. And using your grill to caramelize the sugar in the pineapple brings out added sweetness that is very complementary to the pork chops.

Serve with Jackie’s Grilled Peach Salad (recipe below) to make this a complete meal.
