Grilled Lamb with Chocolate Mint Salsa

Thomas J. Story
Total time 25 mins
Yield Serves 4
This salsa is good with any hearty meat, but especially lamb. Because the mint is so potent, we've added parsley to mellow it a little.

Ingredients

  • 8 lamb chops (2 1/2 lbs.)
  • About 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped chocolate mint
  • 1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 red jalapeño chile, minced
  • 1 green onion, chopped
