Cook's Tips:

The vinaigrette can be made ahead of time for this recipe. Letting it stand for a few hours will help marry the flavors.

 
When purchasing pork chops, look for “marbling” in the loin/muscle area of the chops. Marbling is streaks of fat found in the chop that render during cooking to make for a more tender pork chop.
