Jamaican Pork Chops with Plum Salsa

A quick, homemade plum salsa is an unexpected but totally fresh accompaniment to weeknight pork chops.

1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon Jamaican jerk seasoning, divided
2 bone-in center-cut rib pork chops, (1-inch thick)
1 large plum, chopped (1 cup)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon thinly sliced green onion
1 teaspoon lime juice
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1. Rub 1 tablespoon of the jerk seasoning over pork chops. For salsa, toss remaining 1/2 teaspoon jerk seasoning and all remaining ingredients, except oil, in small bowl.

2. Heat oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Cook pork 8 to 10 minutes or until pale pink in center, turning once. Serve with salsa.
