Lamb Pomegranate Salad

Lamb here is far cheaper than it is back home – and its delicious! I find when I come home from work I often don’t want a heavy meal, but I also want something warm! A warm salad is the perfect option. I love this pairing of lamb and pomegranate and mint! The flavours really burst and the crunch of the pomegranate seeds really add to the appeal.

To make this salad I really just marinate the lamb steaks, grill them to medium rare, slice and then throw together with greens and veggies.

To make the lamb:

  • 2-3 lamb steaks
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salad greens (arugula, lamb’s lettuce, radicchio, etc)
  • Handful cherry tomatoes
  • Handful of asparagus, blanched and chopped
  • 2-3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 pomegranate, seeded
  • handful of mint, chopped
  1. Marinate lamb for several hours. Remove from marinade and grill to medium rare.
  2. Blanch asparagus in boiling water for 3 minutes, drain and rinse with cold water to stop cooking.
  3. Let sit for 10 minutes while you toss the salad ingredients
  4. Slice lamb and set over salad, pour juice over salad as dressing.
