  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 large cucumber, sliced

  • 12-16 domestic lamb chops, frenched*
  • additional extra virgin olive oil for drizzling over dish

Directions:

  1. Prepare outside grill for cooking, if using.
  2. Place garlic in mixing bowl with large pinch of salt. Add vinegar; mix and slowly whisk in olive oil.

  4. Season lamb chops liberally to your liking and grill outside or on stove-top to desired doneness and place chops on platter.

*For “frenching,” have butcher cut meat away from end of chop so part of bone is exposed. You may also roast or grill 2 racks of lamb and cut into chops.
