Dinner Tonight: Grilled Lamb Chops with Cucumber, Oregano and Feta

A fast dinner to grill, accented by fresh summery cucumbers.

Grilled Lamb Chops with Cucumber, Oregano and Feta

  • 4 lamb shoulder or rib chops, about 1 inch thick
  • 6 Kirby cucumbers
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves
  • 4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar

Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Lightly oil the grill grates.

Blot dry the lamb chops with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Place on the hot grill and cook until desired doneness, 6 to 8 minutes per side for medium-rare.

Meanwhile, halve and thickly slice the cucumbers and combine them in a large bowl with the oregano, feta, olive oil, and vinegar. Season the cucumber salad with salt and pepper, and serve with the lamb chops.

Yield: 4 servings.
