Position an oven rack 6 inches from the broiler and heat the broiler on high. Lightly oil the grate of a broiler pan and line the bottom of the pan with foil.
Rub the lamb chops with the remaining 1 Tbs. oil and generously season all over with salt and pepper. Set the lamb chops on the prepared pan and broil until well browned, about 8 minutes. Flip the chops and continue to cook until the second side is well browned, about 3 minutes more for medium rare. Let the lamb rest for 5 minutes.
Top each lamb chop with some of the olive salsa and serve.
I have made this salsa many times mostly with lamb at New Years we made lamb burgers and put the Salsa on them and everyone loved it. This is a keeper Thanks!
Garlic and rosemary would be my usual choices for flavouring lamb, and I would never have thought of the combination of olives and mint. But this salsa was a delicious complement to the lamb. I would definitely make the dish again. I'm planning to try the leftover salsa with fish.
