Grilled Lamb Cutlets

These lamb cutlets are "French cut" (carved from a rack of lamb). These cutlets have very little fat and the trimmed bones make it easy for kids to eat at a picnic or barbecue. De-lish!

French trimmed lamb cutlets (4 pounds)
2 tablespoons olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
cracked pepper

1 small container ricotta cheese
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon dried mint
cracked pepper

Place lamb cutlets in a dish. In a small bowl mix remaining ingredients and pour over lamb. Stir around and turn cutlets to cover with marinade. Refrigerate and let marinate for 2 hours.

Grill lamb cutlets on high for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Serve immediately with ricotta cheese dip.
