Gremolata is fun to say and even more fun to eat. This combination of fresh parsley, lemon zest, and garlic is a classic accompaniment to Italian comfort dishes. We get a little nutty and add hazelnuts to this version. The light and fresh punch of the gremolata makes this a perfect warm-weather pork chop.
