  • Summary

    This recipe was inspired by my dad, Mark Boone, who loves lamb chops and pistachios. In this dish, the nuts add richness to a riff on a classic salsa verde. The bright, herby sauce is the perfect accompaniment to grilled lamb chops.

    Ingredients

    • 2 medium shallots, coarsely chopped
    • 1 garlic clove, coarsely chopped
    • 1 cup (packed) fresh parsley leaves with tender stems
    • 1/2 cup (packed) fresh mint leaves with tender stems
    • 1/2 cup unsalted, toasted pistachios
    • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
    • 2 tablespoons capers
    • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 12 (1-inch-thick) lamb rib or loin chops (about 2 pounds)
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
