Ingredients

  • 3 Cups fresh cherries (3/4 pound), pitted and chopped
  • 2 scallions, sliced thinly
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped mint
  • 1 Tablespoon minced jalapeño
  • 2 Teaspoons lime juice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 8 bone-in lamb loin chops (about 2 pounds)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon freshly grated lime zest

Directions

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the cherries, scallions, mint, jalapeño, lime juice, and ¼ teaspoon of the salt. Stir to combine and set aside.

Preheat a grill on medium heat.

Season the lamb chops with the remaining salt and rub with the lime zest. Grill the chops for 5-6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Top with the salsa and serve.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
