Mashed potatoes with bits of scallion are a tasty side dish to serve with the grilled pork chops and tomatoes.

4      boneless center cut pork chops (1-1/4 pounds total)
1/2   tablespoon   reduced-calorie vinaigrette dressing
1 1/2   teaspoons   Montreal seasoning
3/4   teaspoon   salt
1/2   teaspoon   black pepper
4      plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise
4    cups   cooked potato
3/4   cup   skim milk
2    tablespoons   butter, cut in pieces
2      scallions, finely chopped
Marinate pork chops in 1/2 cup of the vinaigrette for 20 minutes. Heat grill to medium-high/medium-hot coals.
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.
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.
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.
