Harissa Lamb with Quinoa, Feta, Mint and Orange Salad

I’ve always been nervous to do a rack of lamb. This recipe was so incredibly easy not only from a technical perspective but from a time perspective too. It would be an absolute crowd pleaser if you were entertaining and needed something a little more fancy with little time. It also feels decadent without being unhealthy. Delicious, can’t wait to do it again.
