Lamb Chops with Mint Gremolata

recipe image

You only need five ingredients (plus true pantry staples like salt and pepper) for this Italian meal for two: lamb chops, olive oil, mint, garlic, and lemon. For a truly Mediterranean-style meal, add a full-flavored but healthy side, like Vegetable Grill with Balsamic-Red Wine Glaze.
