Grilled Pork Belly

@ mirandablue
I hope you are not feeling stuffed and bloated anymore after pigging out on Christmas weekend.  And hopefully, you would take time to put down the fork for a few minutes and join the conversation on New Year's eve.  It's an effective trick to eat less without noticing it.:p

Aside from the noche buena ham, this is the only pork dish I had on Christmas day *pats myself on the back*---pan-grilled pork belly with mango salsa.  The mango salsa was added to neutralize the umay factor and of course, to make the pork chops look festive.

Mango Salsa:

Diced ripe mango, onions, tomatoes, celery, cucumber julienne, sweet bell pepper, cilantro; fresh lemon juice, olive oil, salt & pepper.

Hello Sweet Friend...
This looks so wonderful, even at 10:30 in the morning. I would love to have the recipe. I love pork chops, but have never tried this type of topping. Looks wonderful.

Hope you have a fabulous New Year. Many country hugs and much love, Sherry
