A cherry on top isn’t just for sundaes; we’re using the fruit to dress savory pork chops in this recipe. You’ll be making a pan sauce that features both dried cherries and cherry jam for double the fruity fun. Make sure to get a little of it on the couscous salad—that sweetness is the perfect complement to the tartness of the lemons and tomatoes that are mixed in.
