Italians 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.
