INSTRUCTIONS

  1. DO AHEAD OF TIME: Marinate lamb chops.  In a large bowl, toss lamb chops with 1/4 cups mixed herbs (mint, oregano, and/or savory), 1/4 cups olive oil, and zest from 1 lemon. Cover and refrigerate 2+ hours up to overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°, then make the dressing. Stir everything together in a bowl until well-combined. Thin with 2-3 Tbsp. water, if necessary, to make a dressing consistency. (Makes 1 cup. Refrigerate up to 1 week.)
  3. Cook lamb. Remove lamb from marinade; discard zest. Sprinkle with 2 tsp. salt and 3/4 tsp. pepper. Heat 3 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add chops and cook until browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Turn and place skillet in oven for 4 minutes or until chops are medium-rare. (135°).
  4. Cook veggies. Remove lamb from skillet to a plate. Pour fat from skillet. Add turnips, onions, carrots, and chard stems. Sauté 3 minutes over medium-high heat or until lightly browned. Add 1 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. pepper, and 1/3 cup water. Simmer until vegetables are tender. Remove to a bowl and let cool slightly.
  5. Toss, plate, and enjoy! Toss all greens and veggies in a large serving bowl. Top with beans,  olives, and lamb chops, then drizzle with dressing. Serve additional dressing on the side.
