There are so many vibrant flavors in this dish.  You can tone up or down the spiciness to match your taste by adding less of the red pepper flakes.

This carrot mint salad is so simple and easy to make, it's one of our favorites, especially at the last minute. The tang of the vinegar, brightness of the mint and crunch of the carrots are an ideal foil for rich braised or roasted meats. Add a few currants for a surprising sweet note.

Plain yogurt does just fine for this refreshingly bright marinade, but you could easily substitute some thicker Greek yogurt for a slightly more sour tang to contrast with the meaty lamb chops - a Mediterranean touch.  Don't blame us if you become mildly addicted to the Greek yogurt.

The yogurt coats the chunks of lamb and, when grilled, give the meat a rich and rounded charred flavor. This marinade works well on just about any cut of meat, though we find that it somehow complements lamb the best. Add another 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes for some heat.
