Servings: 4 Prep 15 mins Marinate 20 mins Grill 7 mins Microwave 6 mins


  • 4 boneless center cut pork chops (1-1/4 pounds total)
  • 1/2 tablespoon reduced-calorie vinaigrette dressing

Make It

1. Marinate pork chops in 1/2 cup of the vinaigrette for 20 minutes. Heat grill to medium-high/medium-hot coals.

2. Remove pork from marinade and pat dry. Season with 1 teaspoon of the Montreal seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper.

3. In bowl, toss tomatoes and remaining 2 tablespoons dressing. Place potato in large glass bowl. Add remaining Montreal seasoning and milk. Cover with plastic wrap, venting one side. Microwave for 3 minutes on HIGH. Uncover and mash. Stir in butter, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and the scallions. Re-cover bowl; microwave 3 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, grill pork chops and tomatoes for 4 minutes. Carefully turn over; brush tomatoes with any dressing from bowl. Grill 3 more minutes, until pork registers 150 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Serve warm.
