Preparation

  1. To make Green Bean & Potato Salad, in a large bowl, whisk together yogurt, oil, lemon juice and zest, dill, chives, salt, pepper and tomatoes; set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, bring 6 cups water to a boil. Add beans; cook until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon; add to bowl with dressing. Add potatoes to already simmering water; cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain potatoes; add to bowl. Toss to coat.
  3. In a small bowl, combine garlic, oil, salt and pepper.
  4. Place lamb chops on a large tray. Rub garlic oil mixture all over chops; set aside.
  5. Heat grill to high. Grill chops about 6 minutes per side or until cooked to 145°F for medium-rare. Remove chops; let rest 5 minutes. Serve with salad.
