Rare Lamb Salad

They're few and far between, but here's another Fast and Edible Meals for the Hungry.

Lamb is an expensive meat here in New Zealand, so this one is a treat. A nice lamb steak, pan fried the way you like it - rare is best I think but you know what you like. Remove it from the pan and let it sit for a few minutes.

While it rests, before you carve it, toss a couple of vine warm tomatoes and mushrooms into the pan with a splash of wine to deglaze the pan. While THAT'S going on, make a fast and easy dressing with good olive oil, your favourite vinegar, salt, pepper, a pinch of sugar and a dob of mustard whisked and then drizzled over a bed of mescelin.

Slice your lamb into thin slices and lay over the dressed mescelin, then dollop the tomatoes and mushrooms over the top.

It's really fast - it took longer to take the photo and get it online than it did to cook this meal.
