Feta cheese adds salty punch to a colorful summer salad from Chef Michael Symon. He recommends serving the salad with lamb chops, but it would work great with any grilled meat.


  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 English cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup red and/or yellow grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup torn and loosely packed fresh mint leaves
  • 1 cup crumbled Wisconsin Feta cheese or feta cheese (4 ounces)
  • 12 2- to 3-ounce lamb rib chops, cut 1 inch thick, frenched*
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  1. For salad: In a medium mixing bowl, place garlic with large pinch of kosher salt. Add vinegar; stir to combine. Slowly whisk the 1/4 cup olive oil into garlic mixture. Add cucumber, tomatoes and mint; gently toss to coat. Sprinkle with feta cheese. Set aside.
  2. Trim fat from chops. Sprinkle both sides of chops with salt and pepper.
  3. For a charcoal grill: Place chops on the greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill to desired doneness, turning once halfway through grilling. (Allow 5 to 6 minutes for medium-rare doneness [145 degrees ] or 7 to 8 minutes for medium doneness [160 degrees ].) (For a gas grill: Preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place chops on greased grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.) Remove chops from grill. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
  4. To serve, place chops on a serving platter. Spoon salad along chops. Drizzle with additional olive oil.


  • *Chef Note: Ask your butcher to "french" the bonescut the meat away from the end of a chop, so that part of the bone is exposed.
