Grilled Pork Chops and Spinach salad with Lemon-Balsamic Vinaigrette

Such a perfect night for grilling! We had these pork chops (sooo good) and a spinach salad.

This is definitely my favorite salad lately. I used 1/2 lb turkey bacon, a bag of baby spinach, 1/2 a sliced red onion, 1/2 container of sliced white mushrooms and lemon-balsamic vinaigrette.

I have had some trouble with salad dressings in the past, but this one came out really good. Could end up being my go-to vinaigrette.

Lemon-Balsamic Vinaigrette
Recipe from Bobby Flay


1 small shallot, minced
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
3 tablespoons aged balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil


Whisk shallot, juice, zest, vinegars, and salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in oil until emulsified.

A big thank you to Allison (once again) for turning me onto this salad and pork chop recipe!
