Grilled Lamb Chops with Mint & Basil Sauce

Lamb chops offer a terrific alternative to steak — they’re quick to cook and every bit as tasty, and couldn't be easier — just season and grill. Pair the chops with the sweet and tart herb sauce. It’s based on a traditional English mint sauce, but throw in mint’s sister herb, basil, for a Mediterranean flavor twist.
