Greek Lamb Chops with Tomato Salad

By: Georgia Harding

These flavoursome chops are a favourite of mine with wonderful herbs and fresh lemon and topped with a fresh Greek salad.



Prep time

Cook time



  • 60mL olive oil
  • Juice & zest 1 lemon
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 lamb loin chops, or French cutlets
  • 150g kalamata olives
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 200g cherry tomatoes
  • ½ bunch fresh parsley, leaves plucked from stems
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 lemon, 1 half juiced, other half cut into wedges
  • 60mL olive oil
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard


  • Make the marinade by mixing all the ingredients together and tossing through the chops.
  • Leave in an airtight container or covered in the fridge overnight. Or if short on time, marinade for an hour out of the fridge (covered).
  • It’s important to allow the lamb to come down to room temperature before cooking, so if your chops have marinated in the fridge, take them out of the fridge for 30-60 mins.
  • Heat the barbecue chargrill or cast-iron pan to a high heat.
  • Cook the chops on each side until nicely charred or to your liking. I like to cook lamb medium and then rest it for 10 mins or so before serving.
  • Make the salad by combining ingredients together in a bowl.
  • To make the dressing, combine the juice of half the lemon, olive oil and mustard in a jar. Dress the salad just prior to serving.
  • I serve the salad over the lamb as the flavours combine so beautifully, but you can serve on the side if you prefer.
