10 servings (serving size: 3 ounces lamb and about 2 1/2 tablespoons mint sauce)

Lamb has a delicate flavor that complements the cool Mediterranean blend of mint and lemon. This make-ahead meal is excellent served with a rice pilaf and a salad or in a pita.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill.

Step 2

Rub surface of lamb with 1 tablespoon lemon juice and olive oil. Sprinkle evenly with Greek seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Make several small slits on outside of lamb; stuff with garlic slices.

Step 3

Coat lamb with cooking spray. Place on grill rack; grill 10 to 11 minutes on each side or until a thermometer registers 140°. Let stand 10 minutes. Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice over lamb. Chill lamb at least 1 hour.

Step 4

While lamb chills, process mint, yogurt, sour cream, pepper, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Transfer mint sauce to a small bowl; stir in peas. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Thinly slice lamb; serve with mint sauce. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.

Step 5

Note: To roast in the oven instead of grilling, place lamb on a rack coated with cooking spray in a roasting pan. Bake in a preheated oven at 425° for 32 minutes.
