Savor the season with these delectable grilled lamb chops topped with simple, yet flavorful, mint pesto. They’re great for spring barbecues, Easter or Passover celebrations. Chef Steve Brockman recommends serving them with grilled asparagus and roasted potatoes.
This recipe was inspired by Vibrant Table’s popular lamb chop “lollipop” appetizers.
