4 boneless pork chops

1 Tablespoon olive oil

Salt & Pepper

Garlic Powder

8 cups mixed greens

2 nectarines, cut into 12-wedges each

2 avocados, cut into wedges

16 cherry tomatoes

2 Tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted

Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette:

2 Tablespoons Balsamic vinegar

1 Tablespoon Red Wine vinegar

2 Tablespoons honey

½ Tablespoon Homemade mustard

2 Tablespoons Homemade mayonnaise

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

3/8 cup olive oil


Preheat grill to medium heat. Rub olive oil over pork chops and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Let sit for 15 minutes to absorb flavors. Place chops on preheated grill and cook approximately 4 minutes each side (depending upon thickness of chops) or until meat thermometer reads 145F. Remove from heat, cover and let rest 10 minutes before slicing.

For the vinaigrette, in a blender, combine all ingredients except the oil. Blend at medium speed for one minute. With blender at medium speed, pour oil very slowly into blender. Add salt and pepper.

For each serving, toss 2 cups greens with 2 Tablespoons dressing, 4 cherry tomatoes, 1 sliced pork chop, ½ avocado sliced into wedges and ½ nectarine sliced into wedges. Drizzle with more dressing if desired and sprinkle with toasted almonds.
