Grilled Lamb Pasta Salad with a Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette

1 lb Lamb loin
2 tb Olive oil
Salt; to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper; to taste
1/2 lb Fresh angel hair pasta
10 Roasted garlic cloves
3/4 c Extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of one lemon
2 ts Dijon mustard
1 sm Red onion; thinly sliced
4 Roma or plum tomatoes; cored, seeded, and thinly sliced
1/2 c Fresh sweet peas; blanched
1/2 c Greek black olives; pitted, halved
4 oz Feta cheese; crumbled


Preheat the grill. Season the lamb with 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill the lamb for 3 to 4 minutes on all sides until medium-rare or desired doneness. Remove from the grill and cool. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until tender, about 4 minutes. Drain and place the pasta in a bowl of ice water. Stir the pasta a couple of times to separate the pasta. Drain very well. Toss the pasta with the remaining olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. In a mixing bowl, add the garlic. Using the back of a fork, mash the cloves until smooth. Stir in the lemon juice and mustard. Whisk in the extra-virgin olive oil slowly. Whisk until the mixture is slightly thick. Season with salt and black pepper. Slice the lamb on the bias, diagonally, into 1/4 inch slices. In a large mixing bowl, add the onions, tomatoes, and peas. Season with salt and pepper. Add the sliced lamb, pasta, olives and cheese. Toss the salad with the dressing. Serve either cold or at room temperature. This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.
