This dish is as healthy as it is tasty! Lamb is an excellent source of high-quality protein and is a source of iron, B vitamins and trace elements such as copper, manganese, and selenium. By topping the lamb chops with the lemon mint sauce, it not only freshens the dish, but also provides high amounts of vitamin K, C, and A.

- 2 cups parsley finely chopped
- 2 cups cilantro finely chopped
- 2 cups mint finely chopped

- Mix garlic, cilantro, parsley, mint, lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil, and salt and pepper in a bowl. Let sit for 15 minutes.
- Lightly salt lamb chops and thoroughly coat the chops with a thin layer of flour.
