Cooking Directions

Season pork chops with salt and pepper, if desired. Heat 1/4 cup dressing in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add chops and cook 6-8 minutes total, turning, until internal temperature on a thermometer readsĀ 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time.

While chops are cooking, combine remaining ingredients along with rest of dressing in medium bowl; mix well. Place equal amounts of salad on four plates. Add chops on plates alongside bean salad. Garnish with basil leaves.
