Barbecued lamb and peach salad

Barbecued lamb and peach salad Easy Food

Serves 6

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp light soy sauce
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
500g lamb leg steaks

For the salad:
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp Dijon mustard
½ small red onion, thinly sliced
2 ripe peaches, halved, stoned, cut into thin wedges
100g rocket
1 tbsp pine nuts, roasted
120g soft goat’s cheese, crumbled

  1. To make the marinade, whisk the vinegar, sugar, oil, mustard, soy sauce and garlic in a small bowl until the sugar dissolves. Place the lamb in a shallow dish, add marinade and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least three hours, or overnight if possible.
  2. Heat a grill pan or barbecue over a medium-high heat. Drain the lamb, reserving the marinade. Cook the lamb for three minutes per side, lightly basting with the reserved marinade, for medium-rare or until cooked to your liking. Rest, loosely covered with foil, for about five minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk the oil, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar and mustard in a small bowl until emulsified.
  4. To assemble, combine the onion, peaches, rocket and pine nuts in a large bowl. Drizzle over the dressing and toss gently to combine.
  5. Cut each lamb on the diagonal into thick slices. Divide the salad amongst plates, then top with the warm lamb. Scatter with goat’s cheese and season to serve.
