Lamb chops have never tasted more spring like than they do in this fast and fresh entrée. Preparation is simplified by using concentrated mint sauce and Ontario Greenhouse Cucumbers. Concentrated mint sauce, available at your local supermarket, is sold in jars and is thicker than regular bottled mint sauce. Spread it lightly over the chops before cooking and add it to this cool refreshing cucumber sauce. And remember, there’s no need to peel Ontario Greenhouse Cucumbers. The skin is totally edible and adds colour, flavour and nutrition to every recipe it’s used in.
