This was amazing!! easy after weekend prep. I fried up flour tortilla shells instead of pita.

This was very easy and tasty - we loved the lamb! Note that the pita chips don’t keep well for leftovers, even without dressing - so best to only add them right before eating. Some extra dressing wouldn’t be bad either.

I love fattoush! This was one of the better recipes I have made. But I think when I make it again I will up the mint content.

This one was a hit! Made it with pork instead of lamb and substituted garam masala for the coriander because I ran out a couple days ago. Everything was flavorful and easy.

The spice mix in the lamb was so flavorful as was the tahini dressing. A company-worthy salad.
