How do you shake up dinnertime? Eat a peach! The stone fruit brings an unexpected but utterly delicious twist to the green salad in this recipe. That sweetness also gets echoed in the honey herb sauce that’s drizzled over the centerpiece: juicy, pan-seared pork chops. It’s all served next to a bed of couscous, which makes this dish feel as hearty and satisfying as it does light and summery.
