Greek-Style Pork Chops

I found this recipe in a Cooking Light Magazine and couldn’t wait to make it. The pork was tender and juicy while the salad was crisp and full of great flavors. It was a simple meal to make and a big hit with all of us. I especially loved dipping the pork into the tangy dill yogurt sauce – a perfect combination of flavors.

  1. I love those kind of simple Greek marinades, they're good for any kind of meat. The chops look wicked good!

  2. So good and so easy! Only difference is that I make the salad with feta and lime juice and forgo the salt.

  3. So good! I added some diced cucumber to the sauce because I didn’t have the other ingredients for the salad. I could drink that stuff 🙂

  4. A great recipe..the next time I will use plum tomatoes as the salad was watery (but I patted it dry with a paper towel). Made shallow cuts across both surfaces on the chops for easier cooking, then cooked them on the grill. A keeper.
