    For a Rainy Day

    If cooking indoors, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with foil and cooking spray. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Pat pork chops dry and season both sides with a pinch of pepper. Place vegetable medley, slaw mix, garlic salt, ginger, and 1 Tbsp. olive oil on prepared baking sheet. Toss to coat and spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven until tender, 18-20 minutes. While vegetables roast, place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Place pork chops in hot pan and cook until golden brown and chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. Remove from burner. Follow same plating instructions.
