Active: 30 minTotal: 30 min

We try not to play favorites with our entree salads, but this one always seems to hit the right balance of flavor and texture. Our community gave this recipe that was featured in 2018 high marks for the flavorful spices in the lamb, the crunch from pita chips, and the creamy dressing.
Smarts: Crumble the pita chips over the salad right before serving so they retain some crunch.

I liked that it was so fast to do. I could not find lamb so we did turkey; but it turn out great. The dressing was ok but not stellar.

The lamb was so flavorful and good! I actually ate this in a naan wrap instead of in a salad. My partner does not love salads for dinner so this is a good compromise for us. Delicious.

Tasty and fulfilling salad. Especially good with freshly baked pita chips. We made 1.5x the dressing, which worked out well.
