Thick chops stay juicy during grilling. Look for chops between 1/2- to 3/4-inch (1 to 2 cm) thick.

Cherry Tomato Salsa:
MethodTrim any fat from chops; slash edges at 1-inch (2.5 cm) intervals to prevent curling. Set aside on large plate.
In small bowl, combine oil, thyme, paprika, sugar, mustard, salt, pepper and garlic. Rub all over chops; let stand for 10 minutes. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
Cherry Tomato Salsa: Meanwhile, cut tomatoes into quarters; place in bowl. Stir in green onion, garlic, parsley, oil, lemon rind, salt and pepper; set aside.
Place chops on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, about 8 minutes. Serve with salsa.
