Adapted from Cooking Light. For easier preparation, choose freestone peaches for this recipe.

(4) 4- to 6-oz duBreton Natural Pork Chops Boneless, Center-Cut
6 Tbsp Aunt Angie's Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, divided
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
4 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
3/4 tsp sea salt
3/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
4 large peaches, peeled*, halved, and pitted
Cooking spray
8 cups arugula, trimmed (about 2 bunches)

Place each piece of pork between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound each piece to 1/4-inch thickness. Combine 3 tablespoons vinegar, lime juice, thyme, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoon of juice mixture. Pour remaining mixture in a large zip-top bag. Add pork, seal, and marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour, turning occasionally.

Preheat grill to medium heat. Place peaches, cut sides up, on a plate. Drizzle with remaining 3 tablespoons of vinegar. Place pork on grill rack (coated with cooking spray). Grill 3 minutes on each side or until pork is done. Set aside.

Place peaches, cut sides down, on grill rack; grill 4 minutes or until soft and slightly browned. Turn and cook 2 minutes or until heated through. Cut each peach half into 4 slices. Slice pieces of pork into 1-inch thick strips.

Drizzle arugula with reserved 2 tablespoons juice mixture, tossing to coat. Divide arugula evenly among 4 plates. Top with pork strips and peach slices.

*To peel peaches, place whole peach in boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove with a slotted spoon and place in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Pull skin off using blade edge of a paring knife to grab peel.
