Pork Chops with Warm Apple Raddichio Salad and Fried Zucchini

YEP. I made it for dinner. I took pictures. I remembered the camera. I'm posting it AAALLLLLL. Thank you Gordon Ramsay. It was good. I had pretty high expectations and the meat definitely held up those expectations. I was wary of the salad. I'm not a fan of raddichio (or Belgian endive by another name). The combination with apples and fresh thyme was refreshing.  I used tempura mix from a box so I didn't have to slave over it from scratch. Little timesavers like that kept me moving so dinner took altogether only about 30 minutes to prepare. And now for what I actually did. Ingredients For the pork 3 pork chops, center loin cut with bone, about 1.2 lbs for all 2 Tablespoons olive oil red salt and black pepper 1 large crushed garlic clove 4 fresh sage leaves 2 Tablespoons butter 3/4 cup marsala wine For the salad 2 Tablespoons olive oil 2 Gala apples, peeled, cored, sliced 1 head raddichio 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh thyme 3 Tablespoons cider vinegar
