Lamb Fattoush Salad
with feta / pita chips / creamy tahini dressing

Active: 30 min Total: 30 min

We've included several versions of fattoush in previous meal plans but are excited about this version that is topped with warm, spiced lamb. What makes fattoush stand out from other entree salads is the addition of pita chips. Crumble them over the salad right before serving so they retain some crunch - the texture contrast is great!

This was delicious. A new family favorite. I told my kids they were little hamburger bites. Left off the cheese.

Skipped the chips. Subbed turkey for lamb to save calories/money. Dressing was amazing, will definitely make that again.

Made tzatziki instead of tahini. Used goat cheese instead of feta. Easy and okay tasting.
