Pork Chops With Cranberry Apple Relish

Christi Cook


I was hesitant to try this because I was unsure of the flavor. Oh my... it became one of my kid's favorite.

The cranberry apple relish is the star of this dish. We could eat it off a cracker on its own. It's tart, sweet and lightly spiced with the cinnamon. There's a delightful crunch from the walnuts. Simply superb! We taste-tested with pork chops, but turkey or chicken breasts would be great with this too. The Test Kitchen
