4 garlic cloves
4 3/4 to 1-inch thick lamb chops (8 to 10 ounces each)
1 English cucumber
2 tablespoons mint jelly
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup Pomegranate Arils
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic


Mince garlic. Pat lamb chops dry. In a small bowl stir together garlic, rosemary, mint, and 1 tablespoon oil. Rub mixture onto lamb and season with salt and pepper. In a heavy non-stick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over moderate heat until hot but not smoking and cook lamb chops 3 to 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare meat. Transfer lamb chops to a plate.

To make salsa, toast pine nuts in a dry skillet over moderate heat until golden. Seed cucumber and cut into 1/4-inch dice. In a bowl, whisk together jelly, vinegar and oil until jelly is broken up into tiny pieces and add pomegranate arils, mint and garlic. Season salsa with salt and pepper. (Do not make salsa ahead or it will become watery.)

To serve, top lamb with some salsa and serve remaining salsa on the side.
