Recipe

Marinate Lamb:

Peel and mince garlic. Pat lamb dry on paper towel and place in a bowl. Add garlic and dried herbs with 1 Tbs olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Coat lamb well and leave to marinate while preparing remaining ingredients.

Prepare Ingredients:

Wash the fresh produce. Thinly slice zucchini into rounds (use a mandolin if you have one). Cut pickling onions in half and zest lemon. Pick mint leaves (reserving some for garnish), discard stems and roughly tear the leaves.

Cook Lamb:

Heat olive oil in a pan (enough to cover the base). Cook lamb over a medium-high heat for about 8 minutes (depending on thickness), turning once halfway. Remove from heat and set aside to rest for 5 minutes. (TIP: if you prefer, you can lightly cook the zucchini - it's up to you. We kept ours raw for an extra crisp salad).

Prepare Salad:

Combine zucchini, peas, mint leaves (to taste), onions and crumbled fetta in a bowl. Add lemon zest (to taste), lemon juice and 2 Tbs olive oil (extra virgin if you have it). Season with salt and pepper to taste and toss well.

You Plate It:

Slice lamb into desired thickness. Divide salad among plates and serve with sliced lamb. Garnish with reserved mint leaves. Enjoy!
