Suggested Preparation Tips: Roast the lamb and prepare the Kona Coffee Vinaigrette in advance. While the vinaigrette dressing is cooling, prepare the Mango Relish and let it chill for one hour. Finally, combine the lamb, vinaigrette dressing and other seasonings and chill for ½ hour while you prepare and bake the Phyllo shells.
