Ingredients / serves 4

  • 8 lamb loin chops
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 baby cos lettuce, torn into bite size pieces
  • 1 watercress, washed and trimmed
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 4 radishes, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup balsamic or French salad dressing

Method

1.
Brush the lamb chops lightly with oil. Season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with the rosemary. Preheat the barbecue flat-plate or char-grill plate to hot before adding the lamb.
