Cucumber, Tomato, Mint Salad 
10 oz goat cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Rub lamb racks thoroughly with black pepper.

Allow lamb to cool for about 10 minutes.  Slice racks into chops and fan around a small pile of Cucumber, Tomato mint salad.

Note: If you’re not searing in cast iron you can place lamb in a shallow baking pan for the oven.

In a large mixing bowl crumble goat cheese.  Add tomatoes, cucumbers and onions to bowl.  Cut mint leaves chiffonade-style into shreds and add to salad.  Add vinegar and olive oil.  Mix well.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Refrigerate for one hour.
