Curried Pork Chops With Honeydew And Cucumber

Curried Pork Chops With Honeydew And Cucumber

Honeydew melon and cucumber cubes make a pleasant chilled salad with just enough sweetness to play off the classic pork-and-fruit combination. Add some pork chops grilled with a flavorful curry oil, and you’ve got a perfect sweet-spicy combination for grilling up as a quick dinner or a weekend lunch. If you’ve been craving curry flavor but don’t want to heat up the whole house making a big rich pot of actual curry, this is one simple and tasty alternative.

If it’s not quite warm enough to grill yet, you could also just cook the pork chops in a skillet or using any other favorite method; you’ll still get the hint of spice from the curry and a quick and easy meal however you make it.

For an even quicker meal, you could make the salad ahead of time and chill it until you’re ready to serve the pork chops – then just pull it out of the fridge and serve. And if you’re constantly struggling to find time for cooking, this is also a great recipe for salad leftovers: sliced-up pork chops make a nice change from leftover chicken as a quick protein to throw over some fresh greens and call it lunch.
