Sausages are always a crowd pleaser, but why stick to the same old pork or chicken? Roasted lamb sausages ring in spring and are even better when paired with a cool grape-mint relish that balances the meatiness of the lamb.
What to buy: Try to find fresh lamb sausages that aren’t heavily seasoned so as not to overwhelm the relish flavors.
Game plan: The grape-mint relish can be made up to 2 days in advance without the mint. Add chopped mint right before serving.

Beverage pairing: Château Bernadotte, Haut-Médoc, France. Lamb and Cabernet Sauvignon, which dominates this wine, are always a magical combination. The inclusion of mint in the relish only furthers the connections, as a good Médoc wine will always have a little mint lurking behind the cassis and tobacco notes.
