  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary, coarsely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp sugar

  • 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb lamb steaks (or lamb medallions)
  • Kosher salt and pepper (to season before grilling)
Mediterranean Mezze Platter
  • 1 lb grilled lamb, thinly sliced
  • 3 round whole wheat pita breads, grilled and cut into wedges
  • 1 English cucumber, sliced
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes (or grape tomatoes)
  • 1 cup oil cured olives (or kalamata olives)
  • 1 cup cherry peppers, marinated (or roasted red peppers)
  • 1 cup marinated feta cheese

Instructions
Rosemary Garlic Grilled Lamb
  1. Combine all the ingredients for the marinade in a bowl and whisk. Add the lamb to the mariande and be sure it is fully submerged. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

  2. After the lamb has marinated, heat a grill to med/high heat. Grill the lamb for about 5 mins total, flipping once, for medium rare (internal temperature of 125 degrees F). Remove to a plate and let the lamb rest for 10 mins before thinly slicing.

  1. Arrange all of the ingredients on large board or platter clustering items together and placing the dips into small bowls. Serve family style.

Recipe Notes
  • The lamb will be delicious after marinating for 4 hours, but even better if you let it marinate overnight.
  • Be sure to let the grilled lamb rest for at least 10 mins before slicing to allow the juices to redistribute.
  • Slice the lamb very thinly for serving and serve it warm or at room temperature.
  • Don't skip the fresh mint as it compliments the flavor of the lamb.
  • The ingredients for the mezze platter are simply suggestions (and my favorites). Have fun and make it your own by adding your favorite items.
  • This platter is made to be served as casual family style and can be left at room temperature for an hour or two (if it lasts that long!).
