  • Cooking Method: Grilling
  • Prep Time: 25 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Cuisine Type: Mediterranean


  • 500g lamb chops
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 200g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 100g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 50g black olives, pitted and halved
  • 2 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high. Trust me, this is non-negotiable.
  2. In a bowl, mix olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Rub this aromatic potion all over the lamb chops.
  3. Grill the chops for 4-5 minutes on each side. They should be slightly pink in the center. If they scream, you did it wrong.
  4. While the lamb is grilling, prepare the salad: Toss cucumber, cherry tomatoes, red onion, feta cheese, black olives, and mixed salad greens in a large bowl. Try not to sneak in too many olives.
  5. For the tzatziki: In another bowl, combine Greek yogurt, lemon juice, dill, mint, cucumber, salt, and pepper. Mix till it all gets along.
  6. Once the lamb is done, let it rest for 5 minutes. Engage in a staring contest with the salad.
  7. Slice the lamb into thin strips and toss with the salad. Dollop tzatziki on top, or serve it on the side. Your choice. I won’t judge.


  • Alternative Ingredients: Swap lamb with grilled chicken or tofu for different protein vibes.
  • Garnishing Options: Sprinkle with additional fresh herbs like parsley or basil for that Instagram touch.
  • Cooking Tips: Always preheat your grill. Trust me, cold grills are a disaster.
