Warm Lamb Salad

Whoever heard of a salad containing French fries? Of course, you could substitute new potatoes if you wanted, but the name of the game here is ease in preparation -- besides, the French fries stand up well to the lamb. If you're in the mood for something vegetarian, simply omit the lamb, as this is still filling and delicious without it.

1 bag salad containing crisp lettuces of your choice, rinsed and dried
4 lamb chops, grilled or broiled
1 pound frozen French fries, baked according to directions and cooled slightly
Simple vinaigrette (see recipe)

Don't start preparing this until just before eating -- the contrast of temperatures is just as important as the contrast of flavors and textures. Toss the salad greens and French fries together in a large bowl. Divide this evenly among 4 plates. Slice the lamb and top each salad with a few thin slices of lamb. Lightly dress each salad with vinaigrette and serve. Serves 4.
