1 401

Here’s an easy to prepare romantic dinner for two. Once you have the ingredients, its a breeze to put together. Grilled Lamb Chops, smashed potatoes and a mixed green salad with a pomegranate dressing that is, well, simply delicious.

Here’s the order of preparation so it all comes together at the same time:

  1. Prepare the marinade for the lamb chops and let chops marinate for at least 20 minutes.
  2. About 20 minutes before serving dinner, prepare the salad – add all greens and ingredients to your salad bowl, and prepare the dressing – set aside. Pour the dressing over salad just before serving – toss and mix and serve. This is one of my favorite salads which was inspired by the Date and Turkish Sheep Salad in the Plenty Cookbook– a must have cookbook!
  3. 15 minutes before serving: prepare the potatoes and set aside when they are done in a covered pot.
  4. Last: Grill the chops which will only take 4-5 minutes per side. I prefer medium rare chops so I tend to lean toward the 4 minutes per side.
  5. Place potatoes in the middle of a plate, lean 2-3 lamb chops over potatoes and serve with salad
  6. Serve with your favorite bottle of red wine and viola – a no-fuss, tasty romantic meal for two.

    Love your recipe. However, I’ve found that 3 min per side is ideal. Bon appetit!
