In the summer, “salsa” takes on a mouthwatering new meaning. Here, we’re making a fresh, seasonally-inspired salsa featuring heirloom tomato—alongside sweet peach. (Since heirloom tomatoes grow in a gorgeous array of colors, yours may look different from the one pictured—but the flavor will be just as robust!) We’re serving our salsa over succulent pork chops, rubbed with spices and seared on the stove. To complete the dish, we’re also simmering rice together with sautéed corn and green beans, infusing the fluffy grains with the bright flavors of the summer vegetables.
