Ingredients

1 shallot, finely chopped

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

4 boneless pork chops (about 5 ounces each)

3/4 cup red seedless grapes, halved

4 heaping cups baby arugula

1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzola or other blue cheese

Directions

  1. Combine the shallot, vinegar, 1 teaspoon thyme, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in the olive oil, starting with a few drops and adding the rest in a steady stream.
  2. Put the pork chops in a shallow dish and season all over with salt. Add 3 tablespoons of the dressing and the remaining 1 teaspoon thyme. Rub all over the pork and let marinate 5 minutes.
  3. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the pork until just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  4. Add the grapes and arugula to the remaining dressing and toss to coat. Transfer the pork chops to a serving platter or individual plates; top with the salad and sprinkle with the gorgonzola.
