Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Place pita breads on a baking tray and lightly spray with oil. Bake for 10 minutes (turning after 5 minutes) or until crisp. Cool, then break up.
  2. Meanwhile, cook beans in a large saucepan of boiling water for 2 minutes and have a large bowl of iced water ready. Drain beans and drop into iced water for 30 seconds. Drain well and pat dry with paper towel. Whisk vinegar, oil and 1 teaspoon sumac in a small bowl. Toss chickpeas with half the dressing and set aside.
  3. Heat a large, heavy based frying pan over medium-high heat. Lightly spray lamb with oil and cook for 4 minutes each side. Set aside to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  4. Arrange vegetables, herbs and chickpeas onto a large serving platter or shallow serving bowl. Top with lamb and drizzle with remaining dressing. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds, pita croutons and remaining sumac.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Crumbled reduced-fat feta. TIPS: Make salad up to 2 hours in advance (keep chilled), but cook lamb up to 1 hour in advance and slice close to serving time. Add dressing, croutons and remaining sumac just before serving.
