Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C).

Meanwhile, combine topping ingredients. Set aside at room temperature. Remove meat from pan and place on cutting board. Tent with foil and let stand for 5 minutes before carving.

Serve veal immediately with Mediterranean topping and cooking juices.

Tips

Suggestion: Cook veal and prepare topping the night before, let veal cool at room temperature and refrigerate overnight. Serve sliced veal and topping cold or at roomtemperature.

*Note: Cooking time is 45 minutes / lb (500 g). Internal meat temperature must reach 155 °F (68 °C) for proper doneness.
