Allow lamb to cool for about 10 minutes. Slice racks into chops and fan around a small pile of Cucumber, Tomato, Mint Salad.

Cucumber, Tomato, Mint Salad:
  • 10 ounces goat cheese

  • 2 to 4 ripe tomatoes

  • 4 medium sized cucumbers, thinly sliced

  • 1/2 cup white vinegar

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • Salt and pepper

  • In a large mixing bowl crumble goat cheese. Add tomatoes, cucumbers and onions to bowl. Cut mint leaves chiffonade-style into shreds and add to salad. Add vinegar and olive oil. Mix well. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Refrigerate for 1 hour, then serve.
