Ingredients

4 bone-in pork chops (about 3/4 inch thick; 8 ounces each)

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Juice of 1 lemon

3 cloves garlic, grated

1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 1/2 cups plain low-fat Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

4 ounces crumbled feta cheese (about 2/3 cup)

3 scallions, thinly sliced (white and dark green parts separated)

1/4 cup chopped fresh dill

1 small head iceberg lettuce, trimmed and cut into quarters

Directions

  1. Season the pork with salt and pepper. Stir together the lemon juice, 2 grated garlic cloves, the oregano and 3 tablespoons olive oil in a small bowl. Remove 1 tablespoon of the mixture and set aside for topping; rub the rest all over the pork.
  2. Make the dressing: Combine the yogurt, vinegar, half of the cheese, the scallion whites, 3 tablespoons dill, remaining 1 grated garlic clove, 3 tablespoons water, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a food processor. Puree until smooth, adding more water 1 teaspoon at a time to loosen if needed. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add the pork chops and cook until browned and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to plates.
  4. Divide the lettuce wedges among the plates and season with salt and pepper. Top the pork with the reserved 1 tablespoon lemon juice mixture. Spoon the yogurt dressing all over the lettuce. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and dill and the scallion greens.
