Place lamb in a large zip-seal plastic bag with the vinaigrette dressing. Marinate in refrigerator for two hours. Remove from refrigerator and allow the meat to come to room temperature.

Preheat oven to 450°F. Wipe lamb with a paper towel and place in a roasting pan. Whisk together honey, garlic, rosemary, mustard, salt and pepper. Coat the entire surface of the lamb evenly.

Place lamb in oven. Immediately lower temperature to 350°F and roast until lamb reaches 160-165°F on a meat thermometer. There is no need to cover or baste.

Serve with a green salad and red potatoes with parsley butter. The pan drippings make a lovely sauce. Let meat rest 10 minutes before carving.


*This recipe is for a boneless leg of lamb. If making a rack of lamb as pictured, rack will need to reach an internal temperature of 140-150°F for medium-rare. Cook time will need to be adjusted based on size and cut of meat.
