Green beans can be trimmed by simply breaking off the stem end. Blanching them keeps their beautiful bright green colour – perfect for a summer salad. When available, yellow wax beans make a nice contrasting addition to the green beans.

  • 8 lamb loin chops
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 oz green beans trimmed
  • 4 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chive
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 Boston leaf lettuce torn
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced sweet onion


Sprinkle lamb with half of the salt and the pepper. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until medium-rare, about 6 minutes, or medium, about 8 minutes. Remove to plate; keep warm.

Meanwhile, in saucepan of boiling salted water, cook green beans until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain and chill in cold water; drain and pat dry. Cut in half; set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together vinegar, chives, mustard and remaining salt; slowly drizzle in oil, whisking until emulsified. Add lettuce, onion and green beans; toss to coat.

Serve with lamb chops.
