When I’m grilling, I’m chilling, so any recipe that prohibits me from carrying on a conversation while making it is out. These grilled pork chops keep things simple: Pop your seasoned plums onto the grill just before you add the meat. Then once everything is good and charred, toss the plums in a zingy dressing inspired by the flavors of mostarda, a sharp, heavy-hitting Italian condiment of candied fruit and dry mustard (here we use whole grain and Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, and shallots). For the most defined lines on your fruit, get your grill roaring hot and don’t move the plums around much. —Tiana Gee
