A couple of years ago, my girls decided they were done with the traditional leg of lamb. They wanted to bring the lamb up-to-date. So now, we serve several different versions of lamb: the traditional marinated leg of lamb that I make, Arianna's gyros in grilled pita bread with a tzatziki sauce and Alex's grilled baby lamb chops with a simple syrup mint sauce!
Our entire Easter dinner menu:

  • The three different versions of lamb
  • Orzo pasta with shallot vinaigrette and feta cheese
  • Roasted red potatoes with olive oil and rosemary
  • Grilled asparagus with reduced balsamic glaze
  • Fresh garden peas with melted butter and chopped mint
  • "Stupid-looking lame bunny" egg salad
  • Deviled eggs
  • Greek salad
  • Assorted fresh baked breads
  • Rice pudding
  • Assorted cookies and Greek sweets
I would now like to share this recipe for Grilled Lamb Chops with Simple Syrup Mint Dipping Sauce for your own Easter dinner, created by my daughter Arianna with a few added touches of my own. I know you will love to serve it to your family for any holiday, including dinner any night of the week. Outstanding!

Sending a big Easter basket of love,
