If you're blessed with a nice stand of watercress, try this elegant and nutritious combination.

Pork Chops on a Bed of Watercress
  • pork chops
  • olive oil
  • freshly picked cress
  • Fry pork chops in olive oil until done, then set them on a bed of freshly picked cress. Dribble any oil and pork fat left in the pan over the greens. Return the pan to the flame, deglaze it with 1 or 2 tablespoons of zesty balsamic vinegar (and a little water if needed) and scrape up any bit of pork, stirring until you have a syrupy consistency. Drizzle it over the chops and cress and serve.
