Roasted Lamb Chops with Peppers & Herb Yogurt

For dinner tonight I splurged and made lamb chops, my favorite protein. There is something about the flavor of lamb that beats all others. At times it's hard to tell whether you're eating turkey or chicken but lamb on the other hand... very distinctive. I paired the lamb with a herb yogurt sauce, arugula salad and sautéed peppers. I have the lamb marinade and yogurt sauce recipes below for your enjoyment :)

Lamb Marinade
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3 tbsp fresh lemon juice 
1/2 cup fresh oregano
1/2 cup fresh thyme
1 tbsp minced garlic

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until combined, then pour over lamb and let sit in refrigerator overnight. 

Herbed Yogurt Sauce
(makes about 1 cup)
1 cup plain greek yogurt
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup arugula
1/4 cup fresh oregano
1/4 cup fresh basil 
1 tsp agave nector or honey
2 tsp minced garlic
Pinch salt and pepper

Pulse all ingredients together in blender until smooth. Serve over your favorite meat, vegetable or as a dip.
