    LifeIsGood's Note:

    This is a wonderful grilling recipe from Bobby Flay. The salsa is delicious and complements the lamb chops so well. This makes a lot of salsa, which is how I like it. Feel free to halve the salsa recipe if you prefer. Since baby lamb chops are used, the recipe allows for 4 chops per person. I'm sure the salsa would be delicious over grilled pork or chicken, as well. Enjoy! *Prep time includes marinating in the refrigerator*

      Made for ZWT7, for the Challenge "Dinner and a Movie". I had to halve the recipe, and the grilling was done in my ridged pan. Would have been wonderful outside on a proper grill, but it's midwinter and too cold! The salsa tastes great. My only regret is -- no tarragon to be found anywhere, so subbed with chopped fresh rosemary. Not at all the same thing, but I felt it had to have a herb! Also, my lamb chops were not babies, but just ordinary size. I used more pecans in my halved recipe, as we love it. Great, tasty recipe!
