  1. Prepare grill. In mortar with pestle or in zip-tight plastic bag with rolling pin, crush fennel seeds with thyme, pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir orange peel into fennel-seed mixture.

  2. With hand, rub both sides of pork chops with fennel-seed mixture.

  3. In medium bowl, mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add radicchio and endive to bowl and gently toss to coat.

  4. Place pork chops on grill over medium heat. Cook chops 5 minutes. Turn chops and add vegetables to grill. Cook pork chops and vegetables about 5 minutes longer, or until chops have just a hint of pink color in center and vegetables are browned. Serve pork chops with grilled vegetables. Garnish with orange wedges and lemon leaves if you like.

  5. Tips & Techniques If you can't find radicchio, a burgundy-colored, slightly bitter Italian chicory, substitute 2 more heads of Belgian endive.
