These simply grilled pork chops are glazed with a spiced honey. The roasted red pepper sauce is just spicy enough to pair with the sweet glaze. And the salad is unusual in that the thinnest slices--shavings, actually--of fennel, onion, carrot and apple are tossed in a lemony mustard dressing.
Add roasted fingerling potatoes for a great meal.
