A note about serious food allergies

The island of Santorini off the coast of Greece is considered to be one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Take a look at the lime-washed homes built into its steep volcanic cliffs that drop off into the azure-colored Aegean Sea, and it's easy to see why. The natural beauty of the place serves as inspiration for this pork chop with bright, clean flavors that complement each other perfectly. Sweety Drop peppers are small sweet-hot peppers that pair beautifully with briny Kalamata olives for just the right touch of richness. Next to a fresh tomato-cucumber salad, this is a healthy meal that only tastes indulgent.
