Friday night dinner was magnificent!
I made the Pork Chops with Squash and Mushroom Salad, on page 147 of the Weight Watcher’s PointsPlus Cookbook. The result? A delicious, healthy and enjoyable dinner.
The recipe calls for bone-in center-cut pork loin chops, but I made the thin cut pork chops instead, and they turned out really nice and moist.
This recipe includes the Squash and Mushroom salad to be served with the pork chops. It is a lively and wonderful grilled vegetables salad, which I made almost exactly according to the recipe, but added white zucchini squash, which I find to be slightly more delicate in flavor.
If you are tracking your points for Weight Watchers, this delectable combo is only 6 PointsPlus per serving (1 pork chop and 3/4 cup salad).
An additional side dish (not part of this recipe) decorated our table. Garlic couscous, is an out of the box dish, and may satisfy a craving you may have for the occasional carbs. And… it is so very tasty!
And of course… let’s not forget the wine. I paired these dishes with the full body and “sophisticated” Argentinian Malbec. Another favorite which I recommend you try if you haven’t yet.
