Lamb cutlets with salad & mint sauce

Lamb cutlets with salad & mint sauce

The fresh salad and mint sauce cut through the richness of the lamb to make a wonderful combination of flavours.

Serves 4
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10-20 minutes


750g to 1kg of lamb cutlets

50g lettuce leaves, torn

50g watercress, thicker stalks removed

50g rocket

1 avocado, sliced

10cm cucumber, very thinly sliced

Homemade mint sauce

New potatoes, couscous or warm wholemeal bread rolls, to serve


Grill the cutlets on a raised grill until crisp on the outside and either pink or well done inside; turn half way through cooking. They should take 10–20 minutes in total.

Toss all the salad ingredients in a bowl.

Place the cutlets on a plate with the salad on the side, drizzling both with mint sauce.

This is delicious served with potatoes, couscous, or warm bread rolls to dip in the juices.
