We are smack dab in the middle of summer break I couldn't be happier about it. Summer, in general, hasn't always been a favorite of mine until recently.  There once was a time when I would dread the long summer days for one reason and one reason only.  We didn't have a pool.

The humidity and Florida heat are unbearable without having a pool in the back yard to cool off every now and then when you're spending time outside.  I may be spoiled, but this momma likes to beat the heat in a sparkling body of water!  The good news is that two years ago we bought our forever home and I got my #1 non-negotiable...a big ol' swimming pool.

Now, my favorite thing is to embrace the sunshine, spending the afternoon with the family around the pool, sipping cool drinks, listening to good tunes, and grilling lots of yummy food.

I've been keeping things simple with our summer grilling menu this year because I want to spend as much time as I can with my toes in the water.  I've been pairing our grilled proteins with fresh, light side dishes using fresh seasonal ingredients and making meals that are quick, easy, and delish.

There are so many great ways you can prepare Smithfield All Natural Fresh Pork, but being the Mexican fanatic that I am, I couldn't resist putting a Tex-Mex twist on it this time around.  I rubbed the boneless chops with my favorite earthy spices, then balanced the bold seasoning with a cool avocado salsa.

I'm telling you, this meal is like heaven on a plate!  Just the smell of the pork chops cooking on the grill is intoxicating.

And can we talk for a minute about that beautiful salsa?  The juicy tomatoes. that creamy avocado, the zest from the jalapenos and lime juice...it's like summer in a bowl.  All you have to do is mix it all up and refrigerate until the chops are done.

It seriously doesn't get any easier and gives you plenty of time to soak up that afternoon sun.
