Served with a simple summer salad, made from onions, cannellini beans, cucumber and mint, these juicy lamb chops make a light summer supper, full of crisp, fresh flavours.

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the onion and fry for 5 minutes, over a medium heat, until softened.
  2. Add the vinegar and sugar to the pan with 1 tbsp water and continue cooking until the sugar has dissolved and the onions have turned pink. Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl with the beans, tomatoes, cucumber and mint; toss to combine.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan over a medium heat. Add the lamb and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side for medium, or until cooked to your liking. Season and serve with the salad.
