Grilled Veal Chops with Artichoke-Arugula Salad

Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 veal chop and 2 cups salad)
Prep: 12 minutes; Cook: 8 minutes; other: 1 hourItalians have a love for bitter greens such as arugula, which grows wild in Italy. The intense peppery-mustard flavor of arugula works nicely with these simple grilled veal chops, creating a meal worthy of company with minimal effort. Prepare the veal chops up to four hours ahead, and grill them just before you're ready to eat.


  • 4 (7-ounce) veal loin chops (about 1/2 inch thick)
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh lemon rind
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 (5-ounce) package baby arugula or spinach
  • 1 (14-ounce) can artichoke bottoms, drained and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
