    4 cloves garlic

    Grate all of the zest from the lemon, then juice the lemon into a small bowl (that will be used for the salad dressing) and set aside.

    In a small bowl, combine and mix together ½ of the garlic (save the rest for the salad dressing), lemon zest, oregano, salt, and pepper.
    2 tsp dried oregano
    1 tsp salt

    Place the lamb chops in the skillet; cook until they are nicely seared and cooked to your desired doneness, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Once done, transfer the chops to a plate and let them rest for 5 minutes.

    While the lamb chops cook, halve the avocado lengthwise and twist the halves to separate, then remove the pit with a knife or spoon; scoop out the flesh into the bowl with the lemon juice and mash with a fork until smooth.
