How to make this recipe
Light a grill. In a bowl, whisk the lemon juice with the mustard, oregano and the 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season the <em>ladolemono</em> with salt and pepper.
Drizzle the lamb chops with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over high heat until nicely charred outside and medium-rare within, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer the chops to a platter and drizzle with the <em>ladolemono</em>. Sprinkle with the parsley and mint and serve with the stuffed tomatoes.
The Assyrtiko grape, which is indigenous to Greece, produces vibrant white wines that go well with tangy flavors, like in the sauce served with these lamb chops. Try the lemony white from Santorini or a bright, dry white from Macedonia.
