Instructions

  1. Place 2 teaspoons oil, rosemary, oregano and pepper in a large bowl. Add lamb and toss to coat. Lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over high heat. Add lamb and cook, turning, for 5 minutes or until browned and cooked to your liking.
  2. Meanwhile, combine yogurt and tahini in a small bowl. Combine celery, tomatoes, cucumber, onion and olives in a large bowl. Drizzle with vinegar and remaining oil and toss to combine.
  3. Place warm pitas on plates and top with rocket, lamb and tahini dressing. Squeeze a lemon wedge over the top and season with freshly ground black pepper. Serve lamb pitas with salad.

Notes

To warm pita breads, preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Wrap pitas in foil and heat for 10 minutes. Alternatively, microwave on High (100%) for 20 seconds.
