Pan-seared pork chops are paired with a crisp, refreshing salad for a quick and easy weeknight meal.
This recipe from the April issue of Cooking Light pairs quick cooking pork chops with a sweet-and-salty citrus salad. It was simple to put together, and we really enjoyed the flavor combination here.
Bright, colorful salads like this are a really nice way to add some excitement to cuts of meat or fish that are otherwise pretty plain.
