Honey- Balsamic Pork
Makes 4 Servings.

Here is a salad everyone should rave about either at a picnic or backyard party.


4 - boneless pork chops

2 - teaspoons vegetable oil

1/4 - teaspoon salt

1/8 - teaspoon pepper

2 - cloves garlic, minced

¼ - cup honey

3 - tablespoons balsamic vinegar

4 - cups iceberg lettuce, Boston lettuce or Bibb lettuce, torn

1 - red onion, sliced

1/2 - cup celery, sliced

1/4 - cup pecans, chopped


  • Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chops with salt and pepper. 

  • Brush with a little oil. 

  • Cook, turning occasionally to brown evenly. You want to chops to "just done." Remove chops from skillet and reserve.

  • Add any remaining oil to pan and quickly sauté garlic cloves until tender, about 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. 

  • Stir in honey and balsamic vinegar, cook and stir 1 minute or until heated through.

  • In large mixing bowl, toss together lettuce, onion, celery and vinegar mixture. 

  • Divide lettuce mixture among individual plates. 

  • Slice each pork chop and fan over salads. Sprinkle with pecans.

Picnicking & Tailgating
