1. Make the dressing by mixing all the ingredients together in a jar - giving them all a goodshake. The dressing can be made ahead.
2. Place the shredded cabbages, carrots and onion in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Toss the apple in the lemon juice and add to the vegetables along with the dill. Add the pinenuts just before serving.
3. Add the dressing and mix well, allowing the flavours to infuse together.
4. For the lamb chops, mix together the cayenne pepper and the oil until well combined. Rub the lamb chops all over with the mixture, then season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
5. Heat a griddle pan over a medium heat; add the lamb chops and cook for 2-3 minutes one each side, or until golden-brown on both sides and cooked, but still pink in the middle.
6. Serve the lamb chops with a serving of the healthy slaw.
