  • Summary

    Grill scallions and jalapeño alongside lamb chops and sliced polenta, then chop them up with fresh basil to make a zesty, spicy, smoky sauce that goes great with everything on the plate. A little bit of that sauce mixed with yogurt becomes an instant salad dressing for the accompanying salad of seasonal greens and cherries.

    Ingredients

    • 8 lamb rib or loin chops (about 2 pounds)
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons plus 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 pound prepared polenta, sliced into 1/2" rounds
    • 1/2 cup olive oil, plus more for brushing
    • 1 bunch of scallions, roots trimmed
    • 1 jalapeño, halved lengthwise
    • 1 cup basil leaves, finely chopped
    • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
    • 3 tablespoons plain yogurt
    • 6 cups torn leafy lettuce, such as green leaf lettuce
    • 1 cup cherries (about 6 ounces), pitted, halved
