This was just ok. The salsa overpowered the lamb

Amazingly tasty. This is a favorite grilling recipe when we entertain guests outdoors. People who have never eaten lamb before say when they taste these chops that it will be the first of many times. I often print out the recipe beforehand so that I'll have it when asked for -- and someone always asks!
