Tonight’s dish is a celebration of summer’s delicious bounty. To accompany our pork chops, we’re serving up a spin on succotash, a vegetable medley popular in the South. To the traditional sweet corn, we’re adding tender summer squash (yours may be green zucchini, grey zucchini, or yellow squash)and cubanelle pepper—a crisp variety with mild heat. A simple sauce made from peaches softened with a bit of tangy verjus offers the perfect sweet complement to the savory pork.
