    Lamb chops can be a healthy meat choice but when fried the calories increase quickly. Instead, cut the fat and up the vitamins by grilling smaller leaner chops and adding nutritious fresh fruit.
  Recipe Makeover

    8 small lamb chops, fat trimmed (about 17 oz. or four 4 oz. chops)
    3 ripe nectarines, pitted and diced
    1 navel orange, peeled and cut into pieces, save remaining juice
    1 tsp grated fresh ginger
    3 spring onions (green onions), sliced
    1 pinch freshly ground black pepper

  Traditional Recipe

    4 large lamb chops
    1 Tbsp dried rosemary
    1/4 cup oil


    Grill lamb chops for 4 minutes each side or until cooked.

    To make salsa, combine nectarines, orange flesh, orange juice, and ginger in a serving bowl. Mix well. Stir in spring onion and freshly ground black pepper.

    Serve immediately or refrigerate before use. Serve salsa over lamb.


    This recipe goes well with "Strawberry Summer Salad" and oven-baked potato wedges "Fun Fries".
