Roasted Lamb Sausages with Grape-Mint Relish

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.

Tips for Lamb

Instructions

  1. 1Heat the oven to 450°F and arrange the rack in the upper third.
  2. 2Place olive oil, salt, vinegar, and pepper in a medium nonreactive bowl and whisk to combine. Add grapes, mint, and onion. Stir to coat; set aside.
  3. 3Place sausages on a baking sheet and roast until fully cooked and browned (or until a meat thermometer registers 160°F), about 15 minutes. Serve immediately with relish.

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.
