Table for One Please

 

Are you flying solo and tired of trying to figure out what to cook for dinner, for one?   Dinner for one can still be fun and wholesome with a creative flair, full of foods you love. Martha Stewart has a suggestion for a delicious pork chop with a pineapple salsa.

Because this recipe calls for only one cup of pineapple, pick up a container of precut chunks from the produce aisle, or grab an 8-ounce can and drain before using. Image courtesy of Martha Stewart.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 c. pineapple chunks
  • ½ small red onion
  • ½ jalapeño chile
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • ¼ c. fresh cilantro
  • Coarse salt
  • ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 bone-in pork loin chop
  • 1 tsp. all-purpose flour

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a medium bowl, combine pineapple, onion, jalapeño, honey, and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper; set salsa aside.
  2. In a skillet, heat oil over medium. Season pork with salt and pepper; dust with flour. Cook until browned on both sides and opaque throughout, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve pork topped with pineapple salsa.
