Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • For dressing: In a small saucepan cook butter over medium 5 minutes or until toasty brown and fragrant. Place shallot in a medium bowl. Pour hot butter over shallot to soften; let cool completely.

  • Add lemon zest and juice, vinegar, 3 Tbsp. olive oil, 2 Tbsp. chopped mint, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper to butter and shallot. Whisk to combine.

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to boiling. Using a mandoline or sharp knife, slice potatoes into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Add potatoes to boiling water. Cook 7 to 10 minutes or until tender but not falling apart. Immediately drain potatoes; toss with dressing. (Potatoes will absorb dressing as they cool.)

  • Season lamb chops liberally with salt and black pepper. In an extra-large skillet heat remaining 1 Tbsp. oil over medium-high. Add lamb chops. Cook 8 to 10 minutes or until 145°F, turning once. (Or grill, covered, 12 to 14 minutes over medium for medium rare [145°F], turning once.) Remove from skillet and let stand 5 minutes.

  • Toss spinach with radishes and mint leaves. Serve spinach mixture with potatoes and lamb chops; drizzle excess dressing over all. Serves 4.
