Pairing dark leaves of lacinato kale and shards of delicately sweet pear make for an innovative salad. But what you do next is pure genius: combine apple cider vinegar and tarragon with butter-sautéed shallot for a warm vinaigrette you’re not likely to forget. The clever moves continue with boneless pork chops seared to tender and broad wedges of roasted sweet potatoes pulled from the oven in our Zesty Mustard spice mix at the golden moment.

Roast the sweet potatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Cut the sweet potatoes lengthwise into ½ inch wedges. On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil, ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Roast, flipping halfway, 22 to 24 min., until browned and tender.

Mise en place
Meanwhile, remove the kale leaves from the stems; roughly chop the leaves. Core and thinly slice the pear. Halve, peel and mince the shallot. Pick the tarragon leaves off the stems; roughly chop the leaves.

Cook the pork
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the pork* dry with paper towel; season with S&P. Cook, 3 to 5 min. per side, until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan.

Make the vinaigrette
In the same pan, heat 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) on medium. Sauté the shallot, 1 to 2 min., until fragrant. Transfer to a bowl and add the vinegar, honey, tarragon (start with ½ for a milder flavour), 3 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions), the remaining spices and S&P; stir well.
