‘Ladolemono’ is the Greek word for a simple oil and lemon sauce. Drizzle the lamb chops with this mixture and see why some of the best-tasting meals are the most minimal and unpretentious. Enjoy this dinner with a bottle of Ribera del Duero or Chianti Riserva.


  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried Greek oregano
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing lamb
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 lamb rib chops, about 3 pounds
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint
