When you have a quality cut, as I did this week with a beautiful DeBragga rack of lamb, you don't have to do much with the meat. Don't mess around, man. Salt, pepper, a little extra seasoning to bring a touch of different perspective — cooked on the grill or seared in the pan... you don't need much more. In this case, that little extra flavor came from some ancho powder rubbed into both sides of the lamb rib chop.
That said, it's hard to resist pumping up the flavor of some traditional sides, in this case potato salad. Mayo is always an important key — which one. Kewpie adds great tang. Then you'll find variations of potato salad that include things like celery to give it some crunch. That's nice. But it doesn't add much flavor. What does? Onion, but how about poblano and jalapeño. Peppers are underutilized in potato salads. You get crunch, you get heat, you get flavor. To round out the theme, try a salad with jalapeño vinaigrette (seeded if you're afraid of the heat).

The decision of whether or not to go full bird depends on how many people you’re feeding, but if your crowd is small, you won’t regret making just a turkey breast. And by using an air fryer, you can get a well-seasoned, juicy and golden-brown turkey breast on the table in less than an hour, as opposed to the several it typically takes to cook a whole bird.
