1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin Olive oil
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil leaves
3 red bell peppers, roasted and peeled
2 tablespoons red Wine vinegar
10-ounces Feta cheese
1 bunch spinach (about 6 cups packed)
Trim and tie lamb. Season lamb with salt and pepper. In a zip-lock style plastic bag combine lamb, 2 tablespoons oil, and 1 tablespoon chopped basil, turning lamb to coat evenly. Marinate lamb, covered and chilled, 4 hours. Cut roasted peppers into thin 2-inch long strips and in a bowl combine with vinegar and 2 tablespoons oil. Chill peppers, covered, until ready to assemble salad. In another bowl coarsely crumble Feta cheese and stir together with 2 tablespoons oil and 1 tablespoon basil. Cover and chill feta/basil mixture. In a blender puree remaining 1/4 cup oil with remaining tablespoon basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a small bowl, cover, and chill. Bring basil oil to room temperature before assembling salad. Preheat oven to 450F (230C). Heat an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat until hot and brown lamb on all sides. Put skillet in middle of oven and roast lamb about 10 minutes, or until a meat thermometer registers 140F (50C) for medium-rare. Cool lamb. Chill lamb, covered, at least 2 hours. Carve lamb into thin slices. Discard coarse stems from spinach and arrange leaves around edges of 4 large plates. Arrange the peppers evenly over spinach and mound the feta/basil mixture in center of each plate. Arrange lamb slices around feta and drizzle salads with basil oil. Makes 4 servings.
