Good! Although I would probably just use chicken instead of lamb in the future.

Loved this! Also subbed ground turkey for the lamb, worked out great! I somehow forgot to add the olive oil to the dressing and it still turned out good! We also just tore up fresh pieces of pita, I liked the soft bread (not a fan of crunchy pita chips).

So good, so easy. I loved the dressing and the spices for the chickpeas. Will definitely be stealing those ideas for other salads.
