Pork Chops with Grape, Feta and Walnut Salad

Thick juicy pork chops, fresh grapes, tangy feta and walnuts make this a family favourite that my family would happily eat twice a week.

Serves: 4


4 pork chops
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 apple, cut into matchsticks
1½ cups seedless red grapes, halved
 cup walnut pieces, roasted
100 grams feta, roughly crumbled
2 handfuls watercress or rocket leaves


Season the pork on both sides. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan and cook the pork for about 3 minutes each side or until only just cooked through.

Salad: Whisk the oil, lemon juice and garlic in a large bowl and season.

Add the remaining ingredients and gently toss to combine.

To serve: Place the pork on plates and top with the salad.
